checks

March 17th, 2018 at 07:17 am

Wow okay so I wrote over 50 checks last year. Crazy. I thought checks were a thing of the past turns out not. Check bill pay does not seem to work for me. I tried 3 times to have them mail a check to the guy who came and cleaned our gutters. I also am told to send a check to the school for activities. They don't seem fond of having an electronic check sent. Nor does the music teacher. Pretty much any kid activities wants a check cut unless they take credit cards.

I only realized this as I am looking over our annual spend and figuring out our taxes. I am pretty sure pre-kids we pretty much never wrote a check.

Oh well. I guess this explains why we run through checks a lot faster than I thought. When I told DH his eyes opened wide. Of course he pays no bills and hasn't cut a check in years. So he was floored. I can now see how many moms walk around with a check and comment "i am constantly cutting checks for every activity." More kids = more activities = more checks. Yes even if it's one activity it's still one check.

    Oh yes, I'm always writing checks for school stuff and sports! Thank goodness my bank supplies me with free checks!

    Like Bluebird, our banks gives us free checks. Lately, many of our local businesses prefer cash or checks with ID. They charge more if we use a credit card since the credit card companies charge them. So, perhaps checks aren't a thing of the past.

    I feel the same way about fax machines. I used to think they were obsolete, but it seems there are still plenty of businesses and doctors' offices that rely on them.

    Checks are not popular and not even convenient any longer! But it's an excellent idea to use them from time to time!
