25 Strategies to Stretch Your Money - No. 10

Schedule Your Bills

The first expenses you have to worry about each month are your household bills like the rent or mortgage and utilities. It's all the more reason to be organized so you can manage your money to pay these on time each month. 

· Use a calendar, planner, computer program, or online banking account to schedule when your bills need to be paid. Any delay can cost you substantial late fees and finance charges.

· If you set up electronic banking, make sure you understand exactly how the system works. Some programs will not allow you to make a payment on weekends or holidays while others may need a few days to process the payment.
