    You limited yourself to Interest. Only thing paying some interest, other than Mutual fund Money Markets, are CD's. Did you look at I bonds?

    Stock market is where all the returns are (but not just any stocks), CD's and savings aren't paying much at all.. real-estate in the right markets will get a return but its risky because those markets have been really hot the last few years and might peak out soon. Bonds, are due to take a nose dive because as the economy continues to thrive, interest rates are due to start rising, and that drives down bonds.

    You really should be asking a Financial Advisor these questions....

    If someone comes to a site on the internet to ask random strangers where to put money, he or she isn't going to know how to choose a financial adviser. At least we don't charge for being just as right or wrong as the paid adviser.

    ALL investment takes study, lots and lots of it. You really should consider ETFs.

    The shortest study of something with the best POSSIBLE return above 1% with the LEAST risk is a large, popular fund like Vanguard or Fidelity. You can google 'top funds' to see where the money is pouring in from those in the know. I've done that in the past with good results.

    We don't hear about the millions of little Bernie Madoffs. But I have a friend who gave every penny she had to one who ran off with it. He went to jail briefly, but they let him out so that he can work and the FBI attaches his earnings. My friend gets a small Treasury check every month. She'll never get it all back (and he could stop working and go back to jail), but it's something.

    That would greatly depend for me where your money is coming from. Care to share?
