The study found the average U.S. household receives about 19 bills and statements from credit card companies and banks every month and makes about seven payments by paper each month.
To which I shook my head in amazement. Nineteen bills and statements? And then I started counting my own. I get eight on a regular basis, and that's relatively low because several of my utilities are rolled into one HOA fee. Add in the random insurance, medical, etc. mailings and it averages a couple more per month. Maybe 19 isn't all that high after all.
Most of my regular bills and statements are now delivered and paid electronically, so I'm ahead of the curve in that regard. I'm getting to the point where snail mail just irks me, but I can't think of a way to not have a snail mail address.
