It Is Always Something

It’s a New Year so why not do some things differently….. right?   In 2017 I am on a mission to simplify – since It Is Always Something!  What am I doing today?  I have decided to schedule my bills so that I can sit down and take care of everything ONCE a month.   If you are like me, you have bills due throughout the entire month – with no two bills being due on the same day.  It’s a constant challenge to remember what is due when and then you ask yourself “did I pay that?”.   I have set up the automatic payments for those that I can (electric and auto) but what about those that you just don’t know what the balance is going to be (i.e. credit cards) so you can’t set up automatic payments?   I’ve called all my credit card companies (business and personal) and scheduled them all to be due on the same day.  Did you know you can do that?  You can pick the day you want to pay your bills and you can time it with your paycheck, or in my case, lump them all together and sit down to review them when it is most convenient for you.    I’ll still have the same amount of bills, I just won’t have to think about paying them every week.   This should allow for some free time each week!
