I've been doing financial housekeeping today...moving money around...fiddling in Quicken and such.
I've got my ING to Emigrant Direct transfer set up for Monday. So by Monday all of the money in the Save-O-Meter will be in Emigrant with the exception of 2 $100 I-bonds, one purchased this month and the other set for later in November.
In Quicken, I've moved my Emigrant Direct account to the Investing section since it's for accumulating a cash emergency fund and not for cash flow. I've left the ING in the cash flow section because I intend to use that "freedom-account-style" for very short duration savings and enacting my spending plan.
My HSBC Online Savings Account is all set up for online access (thank god they are re-designing their website). I can now access my mortgage through their site, but only to get quick facts like interest paid this year, escrow info, loan details and such. I did notice they appear to allow transfers from my new online savings account into the loan account, so that may hold promise for me being able to flexibly pay down my mortgage at no extra cost to me. We'll see. At least opening the account netted me another $35.
