For the Love of Online Bill Pay
I'm sure everyone is very aware of the options that exist within the realm of online banking, but I happen to really love the option to pay my bills online. I pay everything online...and I do mean everything. Even when it seems like I can't pay a bill online, there are round about ways to actually pay that bill all the same. For example, my Forum Credit Union has one account number for my checking, savings, and home equity loan, so when I send the online bill payment to them, it automatically goes to the checking account. Luckily for me, I just go to the Forum online account and transfer the money over to the equity line and ta da...the bill is paid and all is well in the world.
Even better, I have found a great way to monitor your mail online when your not around to get it from your mail box. A website and service called "Earth Class Mail" will do it for you. Check it out: http://www.earthclassmail.com/. This site has a couple different levels of service options but the overall concept is that you can monitor your mail from any location, at any time, without having physical paper in your hands. Pretty cool stuff. This makes international travel and international living more practical and makes the world just a little bit smaller.

I'm almost 30 years old, living in the midwest, but love to travel around the world when I can. I have a great girlfriend, group of friends, and life in general. I seek a simpler existence in a challenging way every day. I like to learn all the time as well. Life is all about the people and places you meet.
