You can even create a home for this as well, gathering the supplies you will need. This again, may just be your computer if you’re able to pay your bills online or it might include your checkbook, envelopes, return address labels, and stamps for getting the bills into the mail.

In the end, you will appreciate that you have taken the time to create your bill system and to organize it in a manner that will work best for you. It may take some time to create the habit of putting your bills into their home, and to establish a schedule for paying them, but you will be glad that you put forth the effort, when you avoid late fees and have everything paid on time.

  • Online bill paying is the way to go (for me). I was resistant for quite a while (I'm not sure why now. I guess it's just because it was something new), but have found it to be a great time saver. I'm also saving quite a bit on postage.
