I am in desperate need of organizational skills. My house is always unorganized and my bills are worse, I have them piled on top of my computer desk and in my purse. Anyone have any idea what I can do?Answer Question
I think the simplest solution is just having a designated box for bills/important mail. Then on/around the 1st of the month, I pay/file whatever is in the box (even if not due yet). This way I don't forget any of them, and they'll have time to be received/processed before they're due (keeps credit scores high).
Take advantage of online bill pay wherever the option exists, but still opt to get paper statements--as reminders. Most credit card companies and major lenders will let you select the payment due dates--1st, 15th,30th of the month--to better coincide with your paycheck cycles making it easier for you to pay on time.
