|Doing a google image search for "cash injection" brings up|
a surprising number of results.
This job also has a kick-ass online money management system where I can direct my paycheck into a number of different accounts. That means that 5% of my net pay goes into my running account, 7% into my travel fund, 20% into my IRA, 30% into savings and the rest into checking. So I've already kicked off the year with a healthy deposit to the IRA--huzzah!
In other news, I just learned about this new thing called Switch2Health, which is kind of like the swagbucks of fitness. Leah Ingram (frugal guru extraordinaire) recommended it on a local news program that I then saw on her website. The way it works is, you buy a pedometer or an activity tracking wristband, track your activity, upload that info to the website, and you can earn giftcards. With my four-mile daily walk, I could certainly rack up the points, but the pedometer also costs $25, so it seems rather foolish to shell out the cash without knowing how quickly you actually earn rewards. Still, I am intrigued, but not sure that a pedometer would go with all the cute dresses I like to wear...
Anyone thinking about trying this out?
