Last month, I passed a small milestone. I’ve collected more than $1,000 (before taxes) in interest in my ING Direct savings account. While I no longer keep all of my savings there, with banks like Emigrant Direct and HSBC Direct offering better rates, it has been nice to see this particular number growing month after month.
Interest earned is one number, out of all my financial data, I know will never decrease.
