Happy Wednesday! Since moving, adjustment has been the key to many aspects of our life. And, that covers getting paid and paying bills as well. At our previous job, we only got paid once a month. So, all of our bills got paid at one time, normally at the end of every month. Now, we have the ability to split the bill ups into two different cycles because we get paid twice a month. We are excited about this change because there were times that money was tight and pay day seemed a long time away. I am sure some of you can relate to our previous struggle.
Getting paid twice and separating the bills between two different pay periods is taking some time to balance out. I have taken a lot of notes, mentally checked and rechecked myself, and actually read through my checking account register many times. I am terrified of missing a bill payment!
To help with the process, I created a new monthly bill planner. I loved the old one, but it doesn’t benefit me as well now, since I pay bills twice a month.
Please, feel free to download this little printable and use it for your own home. Or, share it with a friend!

And, a look at my new planner in use.
I am pretty excited about the way this planner turned out. I must admit, I was a little skeptical at first. I wasn’t sure how I was going to fit everything on one page (with an appropriate size font) and make it look good. Overall, I think it is going to be very beneficial for my family! And, it will definitely keep my mind at ease.
