Newspaper Subscription

Are you the type that prefers reading the news over watching, then subscribing to the digital format? Your newspaper might end up being piled up when life issues show their face or when you get busy.

It isn’t so ideal because there are several online sites where you can see daily news to digest without losing any dime from your wallet. It is easier to cancel the plan when you place it on a one-month subscription, especially when life becomes hectic.

Most newspapers give their readers an autopay plan. Some might fall for this trap, thinking it’ll save them from stress.


Autopay is actually a perfect idea when you have very necessary expenses. After all, we all want to be efficient in paying our bills.

But, don’t be surprised if you don’t take cognizance of these bills mentioned above; your money might be running down the drain without your knowledge. Do not barter efficiency for wastage; some of your acts might be a detriment to your wallet.

Just make sure you have a jotter or calendar for tracking these bills monthly. As time goes on, you’ll get used to it. You’ll notice that your account balance won’t be reduced with no reasonable cause.

  1. Some of your mentioned that you shouldn’t put on autopay is automatically deducted every month whether you want it or not. Amazon and Ancestry are automatically deducted as is and local newspaper. Had to choice. I did put electric and cell phone on automatic BUT still get the paper copy of the bill each month. You have to request they keep sending you the bill even though on autopay. That way I can keep watching the charges.

    1. I am 100 per cent against paying anything with auto pay; reason ; if you get hurt or die auto pay goes on till someone finds out and stops it ; you go for a quick swim in the everglades and get eaten by a gator ; go for a hike on mt Everest ; and you get eaten by a bear; or fall in a hole or fall off the mountain ; nobody knows your missing for weeks; months; or years AUTO PAY goes on ; and if your on SSI or retired with a pension; it could go on for E V E R !!!!!!!!!

  2. Hi Elizabeth.

    Said my note didn’t go through. If you receive two, sorry!

    Do you know what this is? It is all over every platform. Most of the people I know say it’s a scam. I never open it. I will kick myself if it isn’t a scam but I figure you know everything in the world of finance. Thanks. Pat

    All homeowners are due a large stimulus this month (but only if they

    1. The IRS has ur information. And any past stimulus that u already received, you didn’t have to claim it. They just automatically sent to ur bank account or mailed you a check. I would think it was a scam but if your convinced it’s real then contact the IRS and inquire with them. They would be your BEST source to ask.
