  • Yes and think all women should! Especially if they are SAHM's a little stash money can go along way! INGdirect has a great account online too!

  • That no one knows about......No

    I do however have my own: savings accounts (yes more than 1), investments and retirement account (all started when I was working). My husband is fully aware of all of these and that they are in my name only.
