Round Up Sunday - Not A Church Activity

September 27th, 2009 at 08:48 pm



Many churches have a western wear day that they call Round Up Sunday where they make an effort to 'round up' members who've been absent for a long time by making a concentrated effort to invite them. This is NOT what I'm talking about.

But, this is...

After lunch today, I'm cruising into my online savings accounts just looking around, checking rates, etc. and decided to play Round Up. Do you ever do this?

Here's some for examples:

Driver's License Renewal Fund (for me & Hubster)sitting there with $45.05 in it and I made an online transfer of $4.95 to round it up to $50.

Clothes Fund for me (I could care less about clothes) was sitting at $10.01 so I sent off 2.49 to round it up to $12.50. One of these days I'll need a new pair of tennis shoes, and this is where the money will come from. Recently bought 'foundation garments' so it's rather low at the moment.

I rounded up the RV Land Travel Fund by $1.51 making it now have $142.50.

I rounded up the Houseboat Fund by $7.19 making it $375.00.

...and so on in various and assorted accounts.

Of course these numbers won't last as we're getting ready to end the month and interest will be added, and my automatic contributions will be going in too, but usually every couple of months I just go in and toss some random 'Round Up' number in there to keep it growing. I'm rather broke at the end of this particular month, so there's not much going, but every little bit counts.

These are all accounts that I make regular monthly contributions into anyway as they are part of my regular budgeting process. I know it makes for additional banking entries but it's not that big of a deal, ya' know?

Do you ever play Round Up into savings accounts? Why or why not? Are you doing this regularly or randomly?

Today is a No Spend Day.

Hubster sold an old stereo piece of equipment today on Craigslist for $15.

    Ha ha ha... DH does this! The weird stuff in his brain borders on OCD, even though doctors don't think he has it. He still has strange quirks, counts stairs, etc. The car payment fund drove him nuts, so every once in a while he'd round it off by transferring money to it. No arguments from me!! I did get a good laugh once when he did this early morning just before interest hit. In general, I don't round up.

    Nice. I don't really do this, because I tend to put savings in in round number chunks. Even money coming from my tip box - I collect the bills from it to deposit monthly. (I make reverse change so there are more bills than coins.) It's appealing though - I like watching the speedometer roll over to the 0000.
