Paper or electronic bills?

Hi all, I usually get my bills sent to me in the mail, but I know many of them give me the option of receiving them electronically via my email. I have never taken up this option as I prefer having a hard copy of my bills for easy reference, so I don't need to turn the computer on each time I want to quickly check something, and so I don't forget that they need paying lol. I also like to record payment details on my bills, again for easy reference - each bill I pick up has how much I needed to pay them and when it is due, as well as when I paid it, how much I paid and the receipt for it. So I was thinking, how many people out there prefer to get their bills electronically, and how many prefer the old paper method?

i do all online banking, it's so much easier. no bills being lost in the mail, no paper being lost in my house. don't have to worry about shredding everything after. just way less hassle

According to my habit.I like the old paper method,because it is easy to read and to keep.But use the bills electronically more environmentally.
