I have another transfer pending from my checking account to my money market account where I'm collecting my grad school CD money. I ended up deciding to transfer only $1700, rather than the originally expected $2000. Although $300 may not seem like a lot of money, I get uncomfortable when my checking account is less than $500. It's stupid to keep a lot of money in a low interest account, but sometime piece of mind is worth the financial stupidity.
$8719 down and two more paychecks expected in May.
