Check, Please

I  mentioned recently that I love Wonder Woman

I used to have Wonder Woman checks

And was poking around on some online check printing sites because I realized that I’m almost out of my current checks.

I almost bought Wonder Woman checks again.

And I used to have Betty Boop checks, too

But then I saw these and went with them

I don’t even like Dr. Pepper but I just love this:

I’m a Pepper

Orange Crush

And the vintagey vibe of the 7-Up reminds me of my grandma and my childhood where I drank many cans of 7-up

Root beer.  Not a fan of root beer or beer.

But I love the vintage-ey vibe of the checks!  Something 70s-ish about them that I am digging.

A quick google search for a coupon code saved me big time, too.

One box was going to be about $18.95 but after the code one box was going to be $6.95 and two boxes were only $7.44

So I got two boxes.

At the rate I write checks, I will have this supply until Skylar is in high school.

We’ve moved so many times since I last ordered checks that it will be nice to have my current address actually printed on them and I won’t have to scribble out the old address (about 3 addresses ago) and write in the current one.

I hope we don’t move from this place for a long time.  I’ve got way too many checks on the way!

1. Do you write out checks?

I rarely write out checks anymore and pay as much as possible online or my bills are auto-drafted from my checking account.

But, there are still times and situations where good ole fashioned paper checks are needed.

2. Do you have “cute” checks or themed checks or do you stick with more of the solids and basic varieties?

I usually sport some cuter or themed checks just because well, I am not a solids or basics girl.  May as well express a little flair and funk with my checks.

P.S. If you’re just catching up on posts from over the weekend, here are mine:

Have a great (and short) week!

  1. Ok Averie, don’t worry because you are definitely NOT the only person who didn’t know about the bank check writing service! I still use paper checks but only to pay my rent. I ran out a few months ago and had to order more — more than I’ll probably ever need! I love cute checks though — mine are a bunch of Eastern landscapes/landmarks. Yours are adorable!

  2. I have a breast cancer check book where the money I used to buy the book was donated to an organization =D I use it sometimes though like at the dental office and other places.

  3. I have never seen crazy checks like that before. I just have boring, regular ones.

  4. Adorable checks.

    In case you haven’t seen: Target has vintage look t-shirts with some similar old school soda logos on them. The catch? They’re in the men’s section. Really soft and great for lounging around the house in. About $9 a shirt.

  5. Ha! I hate checks and rarely use them…these are really cool though. Even though I hate soda, those graphics are dang cool!

  6. I hardly ever write cheques anymore. Online banking is the way to go for me.
    When we lived in our apartment building, I paid the rent with cheques.
    Nothing fancy on our cheques: boring blue background with black font.

    We were moving around so often for a while that I got the cheques without an address on them, and then just wrote it in – or used an address label. Easiest way to keep the cheques current :)

  7. I write a few checks. I like getting a physical bill (which I know is awful for the environment) but has helped me many a time to prove that I have actually paid for something or can tell me exactly what the charges were for without later being changed online. Which I have had happen before, it said one thing and then magically said something else. Uh uh, print that out and send me a copy and THEN I’ll prove what I know to be true.

    I actually tried to get fancy checks once, but my credit union has a weird way of doing them so when I got the checks they were worthless. I filled in all of the appropriate info, but there was no box for some extra numbers that my credit union throws on there. Waste of money! That’s fine, I’ll stick with my boring checks then!

  8. Love the checks, very fun and vintage! I used to be nuts for Dr. Pepper in high school.

    1. Rarely, maybe 2 a month. But I always get stuck behind people taking forever to write them at gorcery stores. :-P
    2. Yes, mine are vintage women of the 20s.
