1. Moving back to PCFinancial: 18:14

I think I'll move back to PCFinancial for my banking. I don't think I'll need any financial statements for my future paperwork. The hassle of getting financial statements was the main reason I moved most of my banking to TD, but the bank fees and lower interest rates of TD's savings account make it somewhat less than worth it. If I can set up an electronic link between my PC account and my credit card...

... after I start working, I think.
