Me. I CANNOT and REFUSE to let SO do it. If he did it, all our bills would either be late or flat out not paid.

Lol this is how it goes here too. I do all the bills and have a spreadsheet for all of them. Df likes that I do them and keep track of our accounts, he doesn't want any parts of it. He just asks how much is in our account if he needs something haha.

And I wasn't in accounting, but was an asst manager for 4 years. I loved doing the books though, was my favorite part of my job lol.


Quoting MamaPeanut:

I do.

Lol I'm sure this is what would happen if I let df do them too.

me. if dh did, I wouldn't be worried it works out better if I do it. I'm more organized and have more time for things.

Yeah I'm more organized than my df. I'm sure he could manage if he used my spreadsheet of what is due when and what we are paying for which check, but otherwise he would have no clue. We have been together 5 years and he has never once even looked at the bills. The closest he got was the one time he was like "but where did my check go", so I signed him into our online banking and he counted all his little trips to the convenience store and finally realized that they all add up.

I usually write the checks and make sure it gets in the mail. He takes care of the cars so I don't mind.
