When I met my husband we both had checking accounts at the same bank. Then when we got a place to rent that wasn't an apartment and meant we had to drive somewhere to pay the rent, we decided to be lazy and open a savings account in both our names so we could write checks off it.
See where I am going with this?
I still find it really really odd that our bank let us open a savings account for CHECKS. Aren't savings accounts for not spending and checking accounts for .. you know? Checks?
