We are intending to celebrate, we are planning on going to our local farmers market and pickup something fun to make for over the 4th, we usually have a small get together with our friends then go downtown to see the fireworks.
So in other news, I setup my ING savings to automatically pull $250 every other week out of my checking. I am excited and nervous about it, I have never been able to do automated savings and have it work before. I think in the next couple months I will probably be saving around $700/month. ($500 into my ING account and $200 into the Roth IRA I want to setup).
I wanted to get the automatic savings setup as soon as I could. Now that my credit cards are paid off, I don't want to see that extra money in my savings account where I can $10 and $20 it away. Originally I was going to just manually transfer whatever was left over each paycheck to ING, but after thinking about it, I think I would end up spending more of the money than I will if I just make it automatic. You see I can learn
I just am a slow learner with a dense head sometimes!
