Yesterday for my money makeover journey, I printed out financial statements. Back in January, I requested to go paperless. Now I wanted a sheet of paper to look at, to see my financial picture. Starring at the statements on a screen wasn't going to cut it. I wanted the ability to compare months and a screen doesn't quite work this. However, I am still saving trees. My printouts were 1-2 pages, where as the copy I received in the mail deending on the account might be 12 pages. No wonder there is a book titled The Myth if the Paperless Office.
