I wrote a cheque for our monthly car loan payment last night. It made me realize that I’m probably still part of that group of people who hasn’t jumped on board the online bill paying bandwagon.
Yes, I admit, I still write a cheque, stuff it in the envelope, stick a stamp and mail it out. I should probably stop that because:
1. stamps cost money;
2. the envelope is not reused (not that I know of anyway); and
3. the cheques? I have no idea what happens to it after it gets processed – whether it even gets shredded and recycled.
Anyway, I saw this article. Something I can definitely consider, so I can look into online bill paying to lessen all the waste.
