Question: My husband and I have separate checking accounts (he pays bills, I buy food and entertain us) and we're wanting to start trying to put some money into savings. We could get a savings account through our bank, but they want to charge a monthly fee for the account. That seems ridiculous to me- to pay someone money when you're trying to save it. We can't just keep cash around the house (coffee can, sock in the freezer, etc.) because well, we'll spend it! What are some savings options we might look into? Anyone had any luck
demanding getting a free savings account out of a bank that normally charges for them?
