I have a checking account and a savings account, a debit card, two credit cards, six student loans, home utility accounts and just as many online accounts to keep track of all my financial information. That means that many usernames and passwords to keep track of, too.
It’s supposed to be easier to keep track of your finances online instead of managing all the paper bills that come through the mail every month. But I have definitely been a day late on a payment because I forgot to mark on my calendar to go online and pay it. I also have trouble reconciling the amount in my online checking account with the credit card bills and student loan payments at the end of the month. (Or maybe that’s just my Whole Foods habit making the checking account shrink.)
