    Default How many accounts do you have?

    I was just reading another thread and it got me wondering how many accounts people have to manage family finances?

    I have so many:my everyday account, a house account (house maintenance/if things break fridge etc), a car account (used for rego, insurance, services), a holiday account, and trust funds for my two sons. So 6 in total. Works well for us.

    Joint, my account (which we use for all direct debits etc) a visa debit account (as we dont have credit cards) and a trust fund account for each child.

    I have one for everyday use and a sub account, linked to the first account, for my savings. I put a set amount in to the savings account each pay, and if I need to move some into the everyday acc, I can do that by phone or online. I find I can usually leave the savings untouched for at least a few weeks. I have direct debits set from my everyday account, so most of my bills are paid on a monthly or fortnightly payment. I pay only $5 a month in fees. marie.

    one offset mortgage account in joint names- everything goes in and out of there, it has redraw too. One joint credit card (we each have a card)- we purchase everything with that, then transfer funds across on line. 3 x piggy banks for the kids.
