One of the first ways to stay on top of your finances is to avoid late fees and bad credit by making sure you never miss a bill payment. My income and my bill payments all happen at different times of the month, so it’s too easy to loose track.
With this Bill Payment Checklist, I can easily see what’s been paid and what I need to pay.
How to Use the Bill Payment Checklist
It’s a really simple system. Just fill in the Expenses column with all your monthly expenses like rent or mortgage, utilities, credit card payments, etc.
Auto WD stands for Automatic Withdrawal, so tick that box for all you automatic payments. This is to remind you to make sure you’ve got enough money in the right accounts at the right time, even if you don’t have to actually remember to pay the bill.
I’ve left the months blank so you can start at any time — No Excuses!!
After you’re written in the months, you can cross off boxes for some bills that don’t occur every month, for example, I cross off every second box for my power bill because it is only due on alternate months.
If you have a home organizer binder, you can print the checklist and keep it in there.
