Know Your Bills

Bills, bills, bills!  Some days it seems like all we get in the mail are bills.  They can be so overwhelming that we ignore them, hide them, and even destroy them.  But, bills just don’t go away.  The best thing to do with bills is to take charge of them!

To control something, you have to know everything about it.  That’s the way it is with bills too.  You need to know everything about your bills so you can make a plan for paying them.

Bills are debts that you’re required to pay.  Pay your bills first and then you can pay other expenses such as food, clothing, and entertainment.

It’s important to pay your bills on time.  The calendar of payments will help you get this done.
