I just read this article on MSN called Still Use Checks? Join the Dinosaurs.
We don't use checks for anything if we can help it.
All the miscellaneous school stuff here (lunch account, field trips, etc.) has to be paid by check, and we pay our rent via check - their online payment service levies a $20 "convenience fee".
I'd prefer to see paper checks go away, but I refuse to pay extra fees over and above my bill, just
Most of our bills are done by on-line with our bank, but a few things, like DH's union dues and Ds's extended day care I have to pay with check.
I still write checks for most of our things.
Our car payment, because we don't have an account with them and don't live in the same town anymore.
thanks to magicalluv for the GREAT siggy!!
