I't's time to start saving like a madman!

My account is finally open. I don't know what the hold-up was and at this point I don't really care. All I know is that I need to start stashing some cash in the account and fast. This is the money that I'm going to use for a down payment on my first house. I have 1 year to save but I also want to pay down some debt. The program will only match what you put in (up to a certain dollar amount), so I want to max out the account.

I'll set up automatic drafts to make saving that much easier.

My house account is still not opened

A little over a month ago I talked about opening up a house account. I'm at the point in my life where I'm seriously either ready to move or ready to buy a house. If I stay where I am, I'll buy the house within a year.

I sent in my paperwork a little over 3 weeks ago to have my house account opened up. As of today that account has not been opened and the initial deposit check has still not been cashed. I'm pretty antsy about the account being opened because I want to start saving while I have the money. I figure even if I add relatively small amounts in addition the savings schedule that I've started, I should be able to meet and exceed my goal.

Now if I could only find out who was holding up the paperwork and get the account opened already.
