Hi, ZoeTo get the nomenclature correct, I believe T-bills mature from 13 to 52 weeks, T-notes - 2 to 10 years, and T-bonds - over 10 years.Lets say you have $50K that you want to spend over the next 5 years, starting now. You put:$10K into a MMF for the next 12 months' expenses$10K into a CD/T-bill to mature in 1 year$10K into a CD/T-note to mature in 2 years$10K into a CD/T-note to mature in 3 years$10K into a CD/T-note to mature in 4 yearsThe minimum purchase amount for a non-competitive T-bill/note bid is $1000, in multiples of $1000.
