I was amazed at the amount of snail mail that arrived yesterday. It proves that the post is not yet dead, but also shows how much paperwork there still is.
Apart from some catalogues, a lot of it was from Santander, in response to me changing eSaver accounts. What a dreadful amount of paperwork that simple operation has created.
There was also a communication from the RBS in the form of an ‘Annual statement’ of my finances. This is the first time I’ve received this, and what a good idea it is. For the past year, it shows money going in and money going out of my current account, broken down by month; a summary of my regular payments; a 12 month summary showing how I’ve taken money from my accounts, etc. Very helpful information.
