Today I opened up the Baby Fund! We decided to open a separate checking account for our baby fund. Last time we just put it in savings and moved it as needed. This got to be a pain when we wrote a check and it took quite some time to clear (there was no one there that day [Sunday] to run a credit card) and we had to make sure we didn't spend that money on accident. Now I will have a debit card to use and checks if necessary and the only thing the account is used for is the transfer and testing. It felt GREAT to take this first step. We opened the account with $250 and I have another $50 in Paypal to transfer over to it as well. So $300 to start and $1700 to go.
I am planning a yard sale in mid April and hope to raise another $200 from that. I have a few things to post on Craigslist, but not a lot. Maybe another $100 or so. Still trying to figure out how else we will raise the rest of the money in 2 months. There is still the option of selling hubby's kidney. ;)
