I've been helping my parents move all this week. (More to come on that later) It's kind of been a week long process and we're still not done yet! Just kind of doing a little bit at a time.

In the process of packing up, dad found a box in the attic of old checks. Going all the way back to 1988! Dad was happy because this gave him a great excuse to use his shredder. He's a shredder-aholic. So nothing brought him greater pleasure than to sit with his shredder and 29 years worth of checks. I don't know how long he had been doing it but I finished up today.

It was a fun trip down memory lane! I saw a check that my mom had given to me to buy my friend a birthday gift. I could tell because it was in my handwriting. I vividly remember she gave me a set amount and I couldn't go over. I did! Oops! She wasn't happy with me! I also saw checks that were written for my senior pictures and the SAT. It was also fun to see where the checks were written to. Any of you Georgia folks remember these places??:

None of these places are around anymore (to my knowledge) and to be honest I had completely forgotten about them until I was shredding those checks. It's so funny because back then, I totally remember going to those stores. There wasn't anything else. It never crossed my mind that one day they would be a forgotten memory!

Do you remember Richway?

I remember those... I also remember Roses, but I'm not sure if you had one nearby. Funny thing though, I found a Roses in Myrtle Beach this weekend! My brother begged me buy something just so I'd have a bag with the logo on it. :)

What's funny too is that they even use to mail the checks back like that!! I remember getting one of the first scanned copies!
