Not all paper kept is important.
Sure, some paper you have around the house should be kept and cherished—diplomas and certificates, emergency phone lists, motivational messages. . .but others, like paper bills? Those paper bills just seem to cause stress both when they arrive in the mail and when I see them lying around weeks later. With all the identity theft happening, with people finding others’ mail in garbage and recycling bins, I’m glad to not have to worry about that, using ePost online to set-up bill payments.
Make getting the mail more fun
I truly cherish the handwritten letters and cards I receive in the mail from family and friends around the world. Unfortunately, most of the time when I check my mail there are bills, or maybe a letter mixed in with the mail. Having mostly bills, and then possibly a more interesting piece of mail really changes how I feel about opening my mailbox. Wouldn’t it be great to not have bills in my mailbox? Ah, the worst is getting paper-cuts from bill envelopes! It literally stings.
I look forward to being able to check my mail, knowing that there will only be letters and cards to collect. It was easy to make the transaction from paper bills to paying bills all in one place, online. Signing up for ePost? Super straight-forward and very quick.
It’s a good idea to not use the same usernames and passwords on all websites, because doing so makes it easy for people to access your accounts online. It’s too bad that it’s hard to remember all those different passwords for sites, though. I love having everything accessible via ePost—just one login!
With all the prompts, it’s hard to make a mistake while setting up ePost mailers. You have no idea what a relief it is to have all my bills in one spot!
There are so many reasons why I’m happy to have switched to ePost, rather than sticking with paper bills. One reason is that I get alerts delivered by email or text message. I choose to have both notification, just in case something goes wrong with one method. Paper really does tend to pile up, with all my to-do lists, letters from my landlady (slipped under the door every few weeks for everyone in the building about very minor things), packing slips and receipts. Not having paper bills is just one way of not adding even more paper to my home and office.
Do you still get paper bills, or have you switched to online bills/use ePost?
