Re: Safety Net
Sharp, I think it depends on how likely you are to need the money and what your other resources are. I was keeping my emergency stash in an ING savings account. However, I realized that I've not had a bout of unemployment in 7 years and I am not likely to have one any time soon. Since I have a sizable taxable brokerage accoungt I could tap and am in the process of setting up a HELOC, I felt comfy putting that money in 5 year CDs to get more yield.
