I-bonds

October 28th, 2011 at 12:55 pm

I bought $5000 in I-bonds from Treasury Direct yesterday. I will make over 4% for the next 6 months and more than 3% for the following 6 months. I've made the most on these bonds in the last few years since banks keep dropping what they give. I wish you could buy more than $5000 online. I haven't found a local bank that sells the paper version. I read that next year is the last year you can buy the paper version.

I had 12 books on hold when I went to the library this morning. Guess I won't be reading many of my books for awhile. Smile

I went to Walgreens this morning and got paid to buy 2 tubes of Crest toothpaste. Cost was 2 for $5.50. I used 2 $2 coupons so I spent $1.50 plus tax and got an RR for $3.50 back. I'll donate both tubes. I also got 3 packages of Ponds facial wipes with a 5 ct bonus back, (30 ct total), for $3.99 - 1.25 coupon or $2.74 each, which is a very good price.

I finished reading the library book Heart of Valor by Tanya Huff. Sci/Fi - very good.

    I loved it when I got a whole bunch of holds at once. Smile

    I always feel like I've hit the jackpot when I come home with a ton of library materials.
