I love the Internet.
No matter what your interest, chances are there’s a website out there that covers it !
For example, I have two cats, Rocky and Boo, and I’m always amused by the funny things they do. It’s especially cute when Boo climbs into my bathroom sink and just hangs out there, sometimes for hours. Certainly this behavior is unique just to her and no one else would find this particularly noteworthy, right?
WRONG! Turns out there is a website out there completely devoted to pictures of cats in sinks ! It’s the funniest site and a good way to spend five minutes if you think adorable pictures of kitties in sinks are entertaining (like I do).
Another reason I love the internet? Online banking!
Online banking has completely revolutionized the way I manage my money and stay on top of my bills. (What can I say? I’m a busy girl in graduate school , so I get excited by things that make me more efficient!)
Oh yes, not so long ago, I had to go to a branch or call a customer service representative just to check a balance, and snail mail was the typical method of paying most bills. Nowadays many of these crucial services can be done electronically. Depending on where you bank, services may vary, but in general you can:
- Monitor your account online—you can check your account activity, view online statements and more, depending on what products you have signed up for.
- Pay bills online—this one’s self-explanatory but unbelievably important so that you are sure to make payments on time!
- Receive email alerts—if you’re feeling forgetful of your payment due dates or your balance is getting low, you might be able to sign for email alerts to let you know.
Ask your bank what services they provide online—or if Wells Fargo is your bank, check out online banking here.
