On We're Not Gonna Pay Rent ... By Check

When I had a year-long lease, I just gave my landlord (who lives in a different city) 12 post-dated cheques. Now I'm month to month and I send her etransfers from my bank account, but it costs $1.50 per transaction which annoys me. A cheque is about 30 cents, but mailing it to her is another 60 cents and the hassle of it all is much more than 60 more cents, so, I continue to e-transfers. But how does Interac have a monopoly on e-transferring direct from bank accounts? Is that just in Canada? I want Interact to have a competitor to force them to charge less than $1.50 per transaction. That's highway robbery!!!

@honey cowl I don't know either, and it's nice to feel like I'm still welcome here and that the Billfold will eventually help me figure it allllllll out. I like that Meghan admits what she doesn't know!

On Let’s Throw Some Money at Our Problems: May 2014 Check-in

Savings as of April: $2,100 Savings as of May: $0! I was saving for a big bike trip, and I leave in a few weeks, so I've moved it all out of savings (spent some on a new bike) and have the rest ready for expenses as they come during the trip (food, lodging, $100 to bring a bike on an airplane, etc.)

On Do 1 Thing

I'm going to buy more tiny lightbulbs for the vanity in my bathroom. 2/3 are burnt out now (the first burnt out a few months ago and I still haven't got around to replacing it)

On Get Rich Slowly "If You Can"

@samburger I don't know, I thought it was kind of challenging. I was with it for a few pages and then it started talking about nominal vs. real values but it was still keeping the "see how simple all this is?" tone, which turned me off of finishing the rest. I can understand saving 15% but I need way more basic info before I feel like I know how to invest my savings!
