How Many ING Direct Accounts do you have?

A reader named bmhumphries made the an interesting comment and asked a great question recently on my How to make paying your year end property taxes painless:
I have a question for you and your readers. How many separate accounts do you have in you on-line banks? I had to call ING recently and asked the customer service if I had too many. (I have 8). He said the most he has seen is 30!). It makes sense though to have a separate one for each non-monthly expense. I have one lumped into “Future Liabilities” and keep a spreadsheet. That has 9 annual expenses in the one ING sub account. I have often wondered if I should split them out into their own sub account in ING. It would make it easier to track, no spreadsheet work to do.
What do others do?
So here’s my very first poll here on Gather Little by Little, also add your thoughts below about how you manage your ING Direct accounts. Thanks bmhumphries for the great question!
