Today's Financial Task: Foreign Currency Exchange

November 27th, 2009 at 08:26 pm

We received some foreign currency during the overseas family's visit. Given how weak the US Dollar is right now, we decided to exchange it right away rather than hold on to it.

Figuring out where we could get the best exchange rate was my PF job of the day. I started calling around as soon as the banks opened. Even tho' they charged a $5 transaction fee for non-customers, Wells Fargo turned out to offer the best deal for us. Drove to WF, did the exchange to US$, then drove to my bank to make my deposit.

Mission accomplished.

Tomorrow's financial task? Scheduling on-line bill payments. Whee.

No House Guests for a Whole Week!

November 26th, 2009 at 11:15 am

The big group of house guests (DH's extended family from overseas who were here for 22 days) left this morning ... I have a whole 9 days before our next house guest arrives! Will post details later, but everything went great. Right now I'm just going to try to get caught up on some of your blogs.

Happy Thanksgiving!
