During a time when the world is becoming more and more concerned with going green to preserve the planet, one thing you may want to consider going digital for is your credit card and bank statements, bills, as well as other important financial documents. For some, paper statements may be a better choice, but you will need to decide which method is best for you.
Paper Statements – Why They’re Still Around
Although using paper is becoming to be considered outdated, having the physical statement can help you remember to pay your bill. You can keep it in a place that reminds you to pay it along with being able to write on it about any questionable charges or fees until it is resolved.
Electronic bills can be set for email reminders, but that’s not always an easy option for some people. Even those of us who are experts on technology can overlook important emails. Many of us are overwhelmed by the number of emails we receive, especially when many of those emails are junk. Due to that fact, important emails can be overlooked and deleted.
However, there are ways to organize your computers and phones to make sure that your information is all in one place in a neat and organized manner, so you can use your mail provider’s tutorials to set that up.
