You probably don't remember but last year after I bought my house I totally underestimated how much heating oil was going to cost me and I was freaking out about it.

So what I did was last Spring after receiving my income tax check I put $1,000 in an ING account and $25 a week into that ING account. Monday was the first time that I filled my tank since the summer so it cost me $645.

This year I'm not freaking out because I have the money set aside specifically for this, actually I have enough to cover a years worth of heating oil expense.

SO this is a success story and I want to thank everyone on FV who suggested this to me.

Great job Judy! It is such a good feeling to be prepared and not have to worry, so glad you have that blessing. You deserve kudos for budgeting, planning and sacrificing to get to this point.
