Paying Bills On Time


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Bills are marked with the date to pay. THat gets put into my BILL FOLDER, which is in my office-in-a-bag. I mark bill paying days on my calendar. In my office-in-a-bag I keep: stamps, envelopes, calculator, pens/pencils. That way I can take the bag with me if I need to and multi-task!!

    I keep all my bills together and I note on the outside of the envelope its due date. 95% of them I pay online, so I sit down once or twice a month to schedule all the payments; then I receive an electronic notice when payment has been received.

I did, however, have to complain with one company whose billing date fell on the weekend, which forced the consumer to pay ahead or risk paying the first business day after and being assessed a late fee. Even with the new laws regarding credit card payments, it wasn't fair. They have since changed it so that if the due date falls on the weekend, it will be counted as received payment.

    I liked this idea. I have a bill basket, but it's far from organized. Thanks for a new idea. Pam
