Paying bills….it’s often a dreaded task, but a necessary one. I used to spend a ton of time searching through the house, sorting through piles to find every single one of our monthly bills. After finding the bills, it took time to gather a pen, the checkbook, envelopes, stamps, etc. and it really made bill paying a pain in the neck!
Recently, to minimize the pain of bill paying, I began to gather all of my bills in one place, which saves me a lot of time. I also came up with a “bill paying station.” This simple container keeps all of my essential needs together so all I have to do is pull it out of the cabinet and bring it to the table with all of the bills. I can’t tell how this has made my life easier and reduced my time for paying the bills from about an hour to less than 20 minutes!! My next goal is to begin to go paperless and pay bills online….but that hasn’t happened just yet!! How do you make bill paying easier??
