I have worked hard to pay off all my outstanding debts, and achieved a net worth that has a 'positive' symbol in front of it. My total savings at this juncture are around $5000 and my fortnightly contributions are expected to remain steady at precisely $500 a fortnight for the two years to come. I rent a house and have a company car.

My total assets include one neglected motorcycle and a case of scotch.

This saved money goes into a savings account with 'local bank 003' and generates 3.71% interest P.A paid monthly PROVIDED I don't withdraw any money.

This is the best savings account I could find amongst the major banks.

My question here is, is this the best thing I could be doing with my fortnightly scrimpings? To invest heavily in some thing or other takes a chunk of capital, and that capital, I assume, can't be paid into at steady amounts, so what options are available to someone with a small initial investment of $5000 and regular input that's going to net me better than 3.71% P.A?

Buy corporate paper? I'm actually interested in this, if anyone has experience.

Get your consumables cheaper. As part of the employee training at Target, they teach you that if a customer argues over a price, and the full price is under $20, to just give it to them for whatever price they claim. It’s cheaper for the company to move on to the next customer than to call in a price check.

Oh and one earns paychecks in exchange for the provision of value, not the expenditure of effort. Aim to work smart, not hard, and if hard work is smart work then okay.
