No, the current SEC yield on VMMXX is now 1.90%, which is net of the 0.16% expense number. Whoda thunk MM accounts would be paying almost 2% interest again?

We created a spending plan for our son's college tuition & buying cars that goes across multiple years. We also plotted out vacations on an annual basis. For home repairs, experts suggest budgeting between 1-3% of the value of your home.
