Posted by on Mar. 28, 2011 at 1:24 PM

Do you girls have a specific day of the month you pay all your bills or do you pay them as they come in & are due?  Are you the one that pays the bills or does your s/o?  Is it a time consuming process (spreadsheets, calculators, etc) or is it a 1,2,3 process?

DH supplies the $$$, but I organize & pay our bills.  We have gone "paperless" for most bills & all are paid online.  I do have a spreadsheet, listing what is outstanding & when it's due to show dh.  It helps him understand where all his $ is going.  lol

 we get paid twice a month...1st& 15th....so what ever bills are due i'll pay them with the money.  I pay all the bills and calcualte how much is left after bills & food. Then i'll put some money into the savings account. Its usually a 123 process..since i pay everything online.

Hubby gets paid weekly...and it's direct deposit to our account....I pay them the first 2 weeks of the month..and I do it either by mailing a check or paying through the computer or phone...depending on the bill. I hav my little folder..and I create my little station lol..I take it a bit too serious but it makes me feel important since I'm not brining in the $$ I might as well send it lol I also do the monthly budget for food & other expenses and put some aside for savings....and see what our fun money (the left over lol) is to spend that month on fun things lol
