Bills Bills Bills

March 2nd, 2013 at 04:13 am

I get paid every two weeks - so it doesn't always fall on the 1st or 15th - or every 2nd Friday or anything like that - which I am sure many of you contend with as well.

Being as such, prioritizing when to pay bills is giving me a headache. Money comes in at so many different times that I am trying to ensure that I pay everything as soon as I have the money, before it is due. I am pretty sure that I have all my categories spread out during the month, but I am longing for the days when I just paid everything on the first and didn't have to pay monthly obligations each and every week.

So, with that in mind, I think I will aim to get back into the YNAB format of bill paying. It may take a few months to get there - but it really does make life so much easier! (For me, anyway!)

    Before I read your last sentence I was going to say that u should try to get an entire month of income saved up so u can pay bills as they come in. It is soooooooo much easier.

    I'm a YNAB convert. It took us awhile to work up to that one month buffer but now that we have it, I'd never want to do it any other way. Plus, I mentally view it as one month of an emergency fund too. If an emergency happened, I have one month of bills already in my checking account.
