    I'd save the money in a seperate account for piggy bank and pay the last bill of the year with it

    I agree with you but you shouldn't skip a payment on credit cards....you still get charged the interest for the month you skipped.

    Why would you give the credit cards or utilities or ANYONE else a free LOAN???Instead, pay the bill and take that extra money you would have given them and put it in a jar or savings account or even under your mattress. Pay yourself first!!

    Great idea! Do you that one of the Philadelphia PA utilities charges a fee if you over pay! One month my daughter and her roomate sent in individual checks to pay a bill. I am thinking it was Phila Gas Works but it may have been PECO. Anyway they overpaid by ONE CENT and the next month got hit with a charge for overpayment.. Unreal when they have customers who never pay!

    I never thought about doing this!
