I have ING savings account set up for each of my husband and my savings goals. We have home improvement funds, eyeglass/contact replacement funds, copay and prescription funds, travel funds, etc. We also have the Electric Orange checking accounts linked to these.

I do this every time I shop. I have found several errors on grocery receipts. Once a clerk entered the produce code for off season blueberries for my onions. I had been charged $4.98/lb as opposed to $.99/lb. Needless to say it is good that I checked.
