This past weekend, I decided to get my file box ready for 2012! To do this, I went through all of the 2011 files I had in my box (ex. utilities, credit cards, doctor bills, etc.), placed them in a plastic tub to be taken to the attic, and reorganized the box. After I got each file folder cleaned out, I placed the January bills that had been paid in their correct folder. During this process, I ran across my credit card bill. And, for the first time ever, I HAD NOT PAID IT!!! This bill was due on the 11th of January and I was completing this process on the 15th. YIKES! So, at that moment, I decided it was time to get a little more organized in the bill paying department. I can’t let this happen again because my credit score is very important.
Feel free to download this printable and use it at your home. I think it is going to help me keep my bills straight each month. Here is my printable filled out after January’s bills have been paid.
