How many accounts is too many?

4 Checking Accounts

5 Saving Accounts

2 CD’s

3 Mutual Fund Accounts

2 Retirement Accounts

4 Credit Cards

That is twenty accounts in total. My husband and I tend to disagree on this one topic. I find having more accounts keeps things organized and he believes it’s too much to keep track of. The credit cards we usually only use two of them for their rewards so we could go without the other two but we have had them the longest and we do use them every once in a while. The checking accounts do seem a bit excessive but 2 of the accounts are used just for paying our rent. We also had one checking account that my paycheck was direct deposited to when I worked so really we have no need for that one as well and the 4th account is our main checking account used to pay all of our bills out of. Now for the savings accounts….I wish we had more….we have a savings account for each kid (3 kids), one for our house fund, and a much needed emergency fund. I wish we had a vacation savings account as well as an account for those expenses that pop up throughout the year like car insurance. The Cd’s we use to get 3% on but now that there is nothing direct depositing to that checking account we lost the 3% and now it’s at .75. The 2 CD’s are earmarked for a car. The mutual funds are all towards our house fund pretty much. Retirement accounts are pretty self-explanatory we each have one. That’s all for the breakdown. Do you seem to prefer more accounts or less? Why?

November Net Worth Update

Hello readers, welcome back! I am adding some more accounts this go around to give a better picture of our financial situation. The rent account was created because we have to pay our rent in a different currency then dollars. I usually exchange the money by using a local ATM that charges no conversion fee and deposit it into the rent account. If you start to following this blog you will notice our rent is very high almost $2100 a month depending on the rate at the time. That is due to the conversion rate and we are compensated 100% by my husbands employer for our rent. Therefore, I try not to geek at the number every time I see it :-/

Our investment income was over 2k for the last half of the month but most of that was just getting back what we lost in the beginning of the month.
