Can you help?
We need to put our money at work.
Plain and simple. We have more sitting there than is necessary. Much more.
But it's not that easy for me to put that money at work.

Dad was a saver, passed it on to me. No credit cards for him...not there were any at that time. Saver..yup that's me and us. (We have them to get cash back)

I used to tell him to not flash all that money. It wasn't that he was flashing it,(older, slower, what bill is this?), it was what he had in his wallet that bothered me. I worried, don't be walking around with 1000 in your wallet!! I think I was be happy bring home 300 a month at the time.

I have invested, dividends.
Looking for an alternative to the markeet. It seems so high right now.I'm not sure about what to invest in...municiple bonds?

I would love to work part time...
Any ideas for parking money somewhere?

Oh, sorry, I know nothing, nothing on bonds, stocks- or anything actually.

I just want to work at Kohl's part time.

Duh! Sorry!
Found the bonds/fixed income FAQ on the fool - that will help a lot...
