Works for me Wednesday...

I keep an excel file for my budget/bills. I have a section for each pay period, I put the bills that I will pay. When I pay them (online) I put the confirmation code next to it. I always have those numbers if needed and it is easy to look and see what I am paying. I am able to shred paper bills as soon as they are added to the budget. I also put little reminders to the side of the budget. I have the columns totalled and can see what is left over after bills are paid. Each section is highlighted a different color so it is easy to read. I shared this plan with Julie and it is working for her too, yea!

Anyway, this works really well for me and I've been doing it for years.
