I grabbed the mail, saw my cable bill. And for the first time in... like... EVER, I opened it immediately, had pen, checkbook, AND stamps all handy (I could NEVER seem to find all 3 at the same time!)... wrote that check, put on the stamp, entered it in my checking register, put the bill stub in my "cable" file, and took that sucker back out to the mail!
Isn't it amazing, that something like this can BE amazing? Like, paying a bill immediately is such a big accomplishment? I'm SURE some of you know EXACTLY what I'm talking about. I used to always pick up the mail, glance at it, set it aside without opening it, and suddenly be surprised when I notice I've let several weeks worth of mail go unopened... or worse, find several unopened bills, open them, and wonder which one is the latest and how much do I REALLY have to pay now?
I hope I can stay in good habits and this instant bill-paying becomes the norm rather than the exception. And heck, it only took a minute! It's taking longer to write this post, than it took to open and pay the bill!
For those of you who have never accomplished this inspiring and gratifying task... it's not hard. All you have to do, is DO it.
