Do you ever find yourself in a situation where you forgot to pay a bill on time? I can say, been there done that! Over and over again! And every time I am late on paying a bill I regret really bad. Not because I might be charged a late fees but that why I forgot in the first place.
Well, I just tell myself that life happens. Just like every mom and mompreneur, I undertake number of projects at a time, and lose track of time. That’s why when it happened last time a few months ago, I decided to make sure that it doesn’t happen again, or that frequently.
If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I love to write things down. I did something similar to rescue myself from happening this again. I created this monthly bill payment checklist printable. I have been able to pay my bills on time by either scheduling online payment ahead of time or just knowing the due date is not too far away, I pay ahead of time.
This is what my monthly bill payment checklist looks like. I have all the bills / expenses listed in one column, with due date for each of them. I have also listed months from January to December. After I write down the bill and the due date, when I make a payment, I check mark under the month it is due for. That is to indicate that the particular bill has been made.
The whole process of using my monthly bill payment checklist makes it so much easier to maintain and organize our monthly bills. I just have to write down the bills and due dates at the beginning of the month or as they arrive.
Till Next Time …
