Do you keep statements?
I have just transferred checking accounts because our credit union started having too many fees, etc.
We have finally come to the world of online banking. I vow not to write more than a handful of real checks per year.
Here's what I usually do when I'm paying bills. After I pay the bill online, I write the date I paid it, the amount I sent and the confirmation number on the statement. I file the statements by vendor (t-mobile, visa, etc) in a file box.
Is there an easier way? I could scan all this stuff but thats a pain too.
I purge all these once a year.
