Money Market Funds are are short-term vehicle in which one can invest their money. The money market mutual fund as it is sometimes called, invests in such investment vehicles as US Treasury bills and commercial paper.

According to Wikipedia, The US Treasury bill, backed by the U.S. government, is a short-term debt. The T-Bill can be bought in varying denominations from as low as $1000 to as high as $5million, with maturity debts issued at a discount. Note: T-bills can have a maturity date that stretches from 1 month to 30 years. In past years, the US government had stopped issuing the 20 and 30 years bonds. However, as of 2017, these bills are now available.

Why the attraction to the US T-bill? It offers low risk and you will earn a guaranteed return on your money. For instance, an investor can purchase a $1,000 treasury bond at a discount of $950. Let’s say the bill has a 1 year maturity date. When that bill matures within that time frame the investor will have gained a $50 profit off the T-bill.

There are both benefit and drawbacks. The benefits include:

  • They are low risk investment.
  • Backed by the US government.
  • They are exempt from state and local taxes.

The drawbacks include:

  • Low return.
  • Subject to federal taxes

Laundromats are the newest business to give the Green strategy a try and the effort has met with considerable success.

The phrase going Green suggests and increased focus on enviromentalism but this does not have to be deterimental to profits.

These new machines also cut down on water waste by automatically weighing each individual load and calculating exactly how much water is really necessary. Their machines are also specifically designed to be user friendly, easy to operate, and run with a low noise level.

Laundry Works also offers pickup and drop-off laundry service in Austin.  This is especially convenient for the college students living in the area.
