    What is your organizational system for bills?

    I change mine every couple months because I like to re-organize things, my most recent way is all in a binder separated by tabs with a spreadsheet on top

    DH thinks I have an OCD problem .

    How do you organize your bills? What's your system?

    We have few bills. Everything is done electronically. I have it step up as a recurring statement.

    I do everything online. I have a spreadsheet for each month on the computer that shows the bill, due date, amount, date I paid it, which account I paid it from and the date that it cleared. I do bills twice a month usually on payday or so.

    We use Quicken... I have all of my bill reminders in there, I can download my bank statement to it, have all our loans, and our credit card in it. Its super easy. And it matches to a T.

    I just go in there whenever (usually 1-2 times a week) and see what's upcoming and balance out my statement. 99% of our bills are electronic, we have two I pay manually. It also 'predicts' if we will go negative in our account, etc.

    It also allows me to see how our spending habits are.. like if we spend a lot on going out to eat, or entertainment (like movies), etc. By this time next year I hope to be 100% electronic to where I won't even need to save any paper bills.. all will be scanned/emailed and saved on our server (or a hard drive)...
