Lots of Outgo

Whew! I have so many checks to mail today.

$540 for my two goats, and their transport. (3 checks)
$200 for my kitten deposit.
$119 for electric bill.
$45 for water bill.

Trash bill still hasn't arrived. I called them and they sent it out Friday, so it should be here anytime.

Have a meeting today for lunch, then I have to teach a class this evening at my old school. So I'm going to just have to hang around the city all day, because it's too far to drive. I will probably just go work at bosses house.

FINALLY stained half of my top of my desk. Hopefully I'll get the other half done tomorrow. I just want to get it done, so I can have my own workspace!

    Many banks are adding charges for services that used to be free, part of their service package. Does your bank offer free electronic payments? it's fast, easy, accurate, convenient and more secure to pay bills and transfer sums on-line. A few clicks on the keyboard and money instantly transfers. The details stay on the site and you need only change date and amounts. for reoccurring bills like electric or water.

    Have you looked at putting utility bills on a CC? I know you pay balances in full to avoid interest and many of the cards offer a 5% rebate on recurring bills like home & car insurance utilities, phone, food stores and gas. It may not seem like a lot but over a year it is a surprising sum. It's important to check with your service providers.

    I live out in the sticks, so as far as I can find out none of my utilities can be paid online. I just looked, but I may look again and make sure I did it right.

    I pay our propane/phone/internet/taxes/gas with the credit card monthly. It does give me a little cash back. Smile
