Higher Bank Fees

September 22, 2011 // Posted in Finance, Shopping (Tags: , , , , ) |  No Comments

My bank just sent me an email that says they are going to start charging me for using my debit card. If I use the debit card at an atm, that is still free. But if I use the debit card to pay for food, or shopping, or gas or anything like that then I have to pay them $6 a month for non atm use.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I did not get the debit card to use at atm machines. I got it to pay for gas and other purchases instead of having to write a check. In fact, some places will not take a check any more. You have to pay cash or use a card – no more checks. So that is totally not fair and I am really pissed off about it.

Old Batteries

What are we supposed to do with old flashlight batteries? I have heard that we are not supposed to just toss them in the trash with everything else. So I have a little shoebox with old batteries in it. But there never seems to be a day when the trash trucks pick up hazardous waste. I know there must be lots of people with old cans of paint, old rusty gas cans and dead batteries stuck in their garages and sheds. What are we supposed to do with this stuff?
