        Thank you, John and Mary ----  appreciate you sharing that you have read these.  Well, it seems that once you have your computer, and you have a fast connection to the Internet,  that some of the Electronic Personal Finance ideals could include the following:

  •    You are at ease about working with a remote Bank where you never go to their building.  You make full use of Phone, Email, Online Banking facilities and ATMs that are located almost anywhere.
  •    You make full use of the virtual Envelope concept to help you control your spending as you pay off your Credit Card Statement monthly.
  •    You do not get a "piece of paper" pay check -- your net pay is deposited electronically into your bank account.
  •     If you own a business, you make maximum use of Internet/Computer receiving and bill paying tools to complement your accounting system --- you especially have someone else process your payroll, etc.
  •    You shop Online and make bargain purchases and pay Online using your Credit Card
  •    You access your current Credit Card purchases info 24/7. Also, by pre-arrangement, vendors can be automatically categorized for bookkeeping purposes
  •    You use Online Bill Payment resources 24/7 to pay your bills electronically
  •    You access your personal Bank Account 24/7 -- which also allows you to electronically transfer money from one bank account at your bank to another
  •    Your Bank and Credit Card transactions are downloaded to your Personal Finance software; either automatically or when you choose.
  •    You utilize Personal Finance software that allows you to know if you have money to spend for the upcoming week, etc.
  •    You make use of Mom@Home HLPer types who remotely does the majority of your personal bookkeeping
  •     You work with a Tax Preparer who provides at least the following:    1> You fill out forms Online, via their web site, as you Online provide them with your necessary tax reporting data and  2>  You work with them as your tax returns are filed electronically
