Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Building "oh crap" fund with extra monthly income.
Very soon I will finish paying off my car and be done with a multi-year dental work ... campaign. This will lead to me having an extra ~$500 a month after taxes etc.
I want to start building up an "oh crap my car broke, or I lost my job" type of fund. My priorities would be
1) Accessibility, i would need to be able to pull from this without any major drawbacks in a relatively short (2-4 weeks) time.
2) Automation, my employer lets me direct portions of take home pay to different bank accounts, I can also do this via my bank's (chase) website. Ideally the whole thing would happen without any action from me past the initial setup.
3) Interest, if there is some way I can make a little extra off of this per month that would be great.
