Make paying bills a bit more tolerable with these recycled checkbook covers!
I don’t know of anyone who actually likes writing out checks, mainly because it feels like you’re signing away all of your hard earned money! Although many people pay their bills online, there are still a few of us who like to send in checks so we don’t have to put all of our account information out into cyber space.
Unless you get cute Disney characters or puppies customized on your checks, let’s face the facts: checks are boring. But if you have a cool checkbook cover you can at least feel happy for a few seconds before you open it up and start paying your bills.
For those of us who support recycling efforts, I actually found some recycled checkbook covers that are both eco-friendly and artistic. “Check” these out and see which one catches your eye!
