June 2nd, 2007 at 12:03 am

I watch my account statements very carefully and I must admit I'm borderline obsessive when it comes to balancing my books. (Not always a bad thing, mind you.)

I checked my savings statement today and noticed that I earned almost $12 in interest this month.

I'm now motivated to add even more into my savings just to see how much more interest I can earn. It's like a little game to add money in and watch the interest grow. When I saw how much interest was added, I was very happy. I wanted to add more and more and more to see that interest grow and grow and grow. It's addicting.

I've always known that compounded interest is a powerful force, but it takes seeing your own money grow to make you realize it.

    It is exciting to watch it grow. I am a whole lot older than you and I was excited to add over $2300 in interest to my accounts last month. Keep it up!

    I know of a person that kept all of their interest separate. When the interest was made, it was transferred to another account I think. This lady was amazed at how much interest that she made and how much the interest was making as well. It truly is one of the wonders of our earth.

    lol because I do the same thing. I balance my books at least twice a week and I watch my saving account interest like a crazy woman. For May's interest I earned $9.07 and for me it is a game as well
