2. I-bonds bummer it's limited to $10,000. Even so, its a quick pickup of a lot of $hundreds

in interest. (That 7.12% rate is only good for 6 months, unfortunately, for Ibonds bought between Nov 1 and May 31 as I understand it, for anyone reading this, and the result of some unusual circumstances as I barely understand it ).

Here's a history of the rates --

Just picking the past 6 years (12 semi-annual rate periods), in chronological order from oldest to latest:

0.26%, 2.76%, 1.96%, 2.58%, 2.52%, 2.83%, 1.90%, 2.22%, 1.06%, 1.68%, 3.54%, 7.12%
