I know I can figure out when these bills will be debited from my account. I'm just kinda lazy about doing all that set up.
    I have to use direct deposit. The issue with auto-pay is that THEY get to choose when to get my money. I prefer to have control over it. I use manual (online) pay for most everything.

          This was my rationale for manually triggering payment through websites or apps, but now that my finances are in better shape and I always have a cushion, I just have them auto-pulled by the billers. I don't think my car insurance let's me do this for some reason, and at this time that's the only bill that won't. We manually pay gas bills for the new house so we can monitor usage (new house, new to gas, unsure of how much to budget for it).

          My bank - and likely everyone else's - has a bill payer feature. Enter the payee info (bank name, address, routing, account, etc.). They will either send electronically or via paper check, on your schedule.

            Before I retired, I used direct deposit. Somehow I divided that up between savings and checking. I don't recall if the division was at the sending or receiving end. I suspect it was the latter.

            Now that I am retired, I use direct deposit also. IIRC, I have to use direct deposit on that.

However, I was interested in paying bills through my checking account as a way to avoid postal delays. The guy at AT&T though said that it would not matter, that auto pay is when they deduct it. Gah! So annoying. I am, however, not as concerned about them billing my credit card - not sure why. I need to see if AT&T will do this without a charge.
              before we ditched DIrect TV/AT&T bill used to arrive way to late for me to pay on time. This was habitual and occurred way before the Postal issues. I called numerous months when I got the bill with less than 7 days until the due date. Each time they profusely apologised and blamed it on the way the mail was batched to send out from their centers. It was one of the reasons we backed out of using them when we switched the intertubes provider- Not only that but they promised to credit us and didn't, changed our package without permission and then told us they couldn't let us revert to the previous pkg because we had been grandfathered and most fun of all the auto pay over charged us one month. mr les spent more than 12 hours on the phone trying to get things straightened out. When we pulled the plug it still wasn't fixed.

              Good Evening Lodge! It was a wonderful day. And I was productive - got a bunch of things done.

                It's more of me wanting to be in control of when I release my funds, similar to Scarlet. *I* choose when you get my money. Not the companies.

                            Still at the HQL

                            How can a slaughter like that be enjoyable? Serious question. I find watching that stuff just plain uncomfortable to watch

                              I listened on the radio. No cable. After last week's sweep, I enjoyed it. Fun fact: not the most hat tricks in a game for the team. IIRC it was against ALA-Huntsville, a 12-1 drubbing, we had THREE hat tricks in that game.

                              Edit: MN played EVERYONE in the game. I think it was a 3rd or 4th line PP unit starting in the 2nd period or so. ASU went through 3 goalies, their last one being from the club team. One of their main goalies was out tonight (non-Rona).
