I do the best that I can. I am trying to get a cushion built up into my checking account to start using the bill pay option

I pay them all on time, and most are automatic online payments... thankfully :)

I actually enjoy paying my bills and monitoring my credit score.  It's important to me that I live "within my means" and that I take care of my financial obligations in a timely manner.

 :heart:

Have a great day!

My wife pays the bills. I work overtime at two full time jobs ( and have a third part tie job) and my checks go directly into the family account. I could only give you a rough estimate of how much I make but if you were to ask my wife at any given point she would say that it isn't enough.  I do not go on vacations because I am always working and if I need to go out of town for one of the kid's events my computer is going with me or I am waking up several hours early to get more work done. My wife/the kids go on vacations once every eight to twelve weeks (Disney World, Soccer tournaments, Tennis tournaments, Lacrosse tournaments, Grandparent/Inlaw visits). Coupled with those trips the family never seems to be home due to being out having fun (and spending money).

Since losing jobs, husband disabled I try my best to pay everyone on time or early.  But sometimes it just doesn't happen.   Even though this F/C does not add up to much every little bit counts.

Yes, I pay my bills on time. I know it can be a juggling act prioritizing your bills but to make sure I don't miss any of my payments, I make a diary note when one is becoming due so that it doesn't get forgotten. Regarding my credit card bills, I try to make payments on the cards that charge the highest interest first, and the cards which charge a lower interest can wait a little longer.

I have three bills that are set up for automatic withdrawal.
Two are quarterly.
I see the foot doctor once a year and pay him by check, which he requests.
 He is always late cashing it. 'It is interesting to me that he asks me to send it in as soon as I get the bill.
Yet, he takes two months to cash it in.

I'm back to no longer having a consistent income (I have a commission job and then I work on-line some).  Some months are really slow, so not much money.  Some months are really great.  So, it's a "balancing" act.
  I pay bills first and then put most of what is left over from my regular job into savings so it's there to pay regular bills during the slower months.
 My on-line income pays for the groceries, pet food/care, clothing, birthdays/holidays, household stuff, etc. 
I subtract any money saved from using coupons, doing rebates, etc from budget & that goes into a savings account for "mad money".

I try to pay my bills on time and I usually am able to do so but sometimes it is difficult.

I Do Pay Bills.  I like paying bills because I can not deal with the stress of not paying bills I hate it when people think it's ok to let bills go. You have to pay your bills.

Do you pay your bills on time consistently? I use to be able to before I lost half of my income, now I pay them the best I can. My goal is to work on one at a time and try to pay them off.
   always try  and send  some cash  ,  even a dollar or two  will keep u in the clear
