Things are quiet. Very quiet.
Since we’ve paid off the majority of our credit cards, we are only getting two credit card statements a month. By the end of the year we’ll only receive one. Our Saturday morning “pay the bills” time has been greatly reduced since all of our bills are on auto-pay. That’s a far cry from the almost 30 bills we’d pay a month a little over a year ago.
Retirement savings to our SIMPLE IRA, 401(k), and Roth IRAs is automatically deducted. Our account are growing in value with little intervention from us.
While I’ll be the first to admit that our finances aren’t perfect, it is a strange feeling not worrying about money as much as I used to.
Automation is silent. Silence is golden.
