Have you ever wondered how people…other people manage to pay their bills on time?
These people not only pay them on time they save hundreds of dollars every year by not having to pay late fees.
It is all about having a system to manage the Bill Paying activity.
Most people rely on their memory to manage the bills and other paper that flows through the home. This is a great system if you are the only one who has to do the managing. What happens if you are not available. The system comes to a crashing halt.
Creating a system that anyone can is easy and it frees up valuable memory for the good stuff…not trying to remember what has to be paid and when.
To get you started here are the beginning steps to a Bill Payment System:
- When the mail arrives, open it at the kitchen island or home office desk. Have the Family’s Financial File Box with you for this step.(The Financial File Box how to is found in the Paper Trails How to Video)
- Separate the bills from the other mail.
- Divide the Bills into Three categories:
- To Confirm payment
- To Pay Online
- To pay by check
