I don't like to keep my money in the bank. I have had troubles in the past that ended up costing me all kinds of money that I really didn't have. Since then, I have been keeping the small amount of cash that I do have in a safe. There are only a few instances that this causes me any kind of problem. For example, some of my bills can only be paid through electronic money transfer. If you have to pay bills electronically and don't have a checking account, my blog can help you find the alternative resources available for you to do so.
