Last night i went to the bank, took out cash for dh, for the week, transferred the money that needed to be. Rather than wait to make one payment, I have decided to make all the partial payments, so I don't accidentally spend it. I wait until the new statement day. all are within the first few days of the month, then I pay them, so they may end up with 3 payments a month, but looking at how a mortgage is and how it saves you $$ to do weekly vs. monthly payments, I figure why not.

So, now to keep it simple, I'm going to make an index card for my purse that shows me the break down for each bill needing funding.

I also have a spread sheet. My Visa will be close to paid off in February! I think $400 left on that one as of Feb 1. YAY!

My bank doesn't charge us for bill payments, so this is a great way to do it!

Can't wait to be rid of that next bill!
