going up $10. And I don't even care. Glad I'm debt free. I don't like that it's going up but I worried about it for about 1 minute. They did not even mail me the letter they left it outside my door. cheap skates did not want to spend money on 36 stamps. lol. I just got a small raise so the rent increase eats that up. Perfect timing! I pay $685 month (new rate) which includes water and electric. still not a bad deal for an apartment in my state/county. My apartment is 420 sq feet, an efficiency.
Just a warning, if you get used stuff at yard sales, garage sales, estate sales, etc. one thing you don't want to bring home is bed bugs. One way they travel is by hitching a ride on used furniture.

the APY will be 2.25% for 12 months... and if I open a checking account before the 12 months is up and keep $2500 in checking (making no interest), the money marking savings account can stay at the higher rate without going down.
only took me two years to finally do this. better late than never I guess. for the year it will make about $675.... compare that to the $10 it made last year. A step in the right direction at least.
