In preparation for my move I am shredding tons of old checks from as far back as 1998. So interesting to see who how many checks I was writing in the pre-pay-online/debit-credit card age. Who are some of these people and business and why was I writing them so many checks? Obviously they were important to my life, back when I first moved to California, but now I can't even recall who they were.
Unfortunately I've clogged the shredder or it has overheated and I'm only about a quarter of the way done.
