A Snowflake & Bill Pay

September 22nd, 2016 at 02:40 pm

On Saturday, a check arrived in the mail from our old electric company. It was a co-op so it was a return of capital credits in the amount of $19.07. I added that snowflake to our savings account.

I went through all of our accounts on YNAB today to make sure I had all of them reconciled. It was pretty easy since I had recently paid all of them down to zero! We really need to close some of our credit card accounts....as I'm really liking the idea of simplifying those.

I sent a payment to my sister by Bill Pay last week for a fundraiser her daughter was doing. I honestly didn't want the stuff, so let her girls pick candy, figuring it was a consumable and wouldn't add to the clutter, but would still support the school. This made me realize, I should use Bill Pay for our rent! I've been writing out the check and envelope and slapping a stamp on it every month for over a year. I was always so used to a mortgage payment being automatically deducted. It was nice! So I'm giving the landlord a heads up that the check may look different. I don't think there will be any issue, and now I know I won't forget, which almost happened this last month.

I use Bill Pay for our trash service, but all other bills are automatically paid from a credit card or checking account. What do you use Bill Pay for?

    I don't use it! All the bills are automatically withdrawn. The exception is my credit card bill -- I like to do that hands-on, so I go to the website and make the payment online. For occasional expenses, when I can't pay with a credit card, I write a check. Sometimes I use PayPal, too.

    I use my credit union's bill pay service for all of my bills. No fuss no muss.

    In Australia bill pay is called BPay and it's used pretty much everywhere. It's so easy, it's great. Cheque use declines more and more every year.
