Mail the darn thing
Wednesday, March 20, 2013
sometimes i drop off bills, but because of where i live, hours i work and hours these places are open i have to drive to get there on time. i suppose in the summer i could take several days or afternoons to bike to various locations to pay bills. the one place is about 8 hours - 1 way. so basically if i hand deliver them and drive. with the time, sometimes a rush factor (if i forget on an earlier day) and the gas spent driving it costs more then the stamp to mail the darn thing.
So i believe i will need to sit down with hubby and tell him we should just mail it. yes, it means paying bills a few days earlier, but it would save time, reduce money spent on gas and reduce stress and annoyance of trying to fit a 25 -35 minute errand into 30 minutes.
This is a simple fix i will enact tomorrow and hopefully no longer have to hand deliver any more of these bills.
update - the 8 hour trip would not be driving the care it would by if i rode my non-motorized, no gas needed, bike.
