Your Bills Together Will Save You Money
Yes, I can practically
hear you asking why simply keeping your bills together will
save you money. But the answer is quite simple. When you keep
your bills scattered all over your house, without a "home"
for them, you can quite easily miss due date you didn't plan
to, and that will result in extra service charges and fees
added to your bills. And that is money you could have saved
simply by being more organized.
Where should you
keep your bills? Not only do you want to keep your bills somewhere
it is convenient for the time when you actually pay your bills,
but it is also important that you keep your bills where it
is convenient for you to put them in the first place.
If your office
is on a different level and on the opposite side of the house
to your front door, chances are you won't take the bills from
the mailbox and carry them directly to your office. Chances
are much greater you'll deposit them on the stairs, on the
kitchen counter, or on the coffee table instead, simply for
convenience sake. So find a space that makes more sense for
you to put the bills would you bring them into the house.
And even if you pay the bills in your office, you will still
know exactly where to find them all when it comes time to
By keeping yourself
and your bills organized, you can lessen the chance you'll
end up paying those costly fees and service charges that you
end up paying simply because you are disorganized and simply
didn't pay your bills on time.
