31 Days of Home Management Binder Printables: Day #6 Monthly Bill Pay Schedule

Welcome to Day 6 of our series on building your Home Management Binder.

Update!

You can now find this printable in EDITABLE format in my Printables Shop HERE for just $3.

Today’s printable is my Monthly Bill Pay Schedule.  Have you ever forgotten to pay a bill on time?  I have, which is exactly why I came up with a schedule that listed ALL of my bills for the year and when they were due.

I keep my schedule in the front of my bill organizer.  As I go through the month, I check off the box when the bills are paid.

How to use this schedule:

1.  Print out a copy and fill in ALL of your bills for the year.  If you need two sheets (hopefully not! :) ), print them out.

2.  Start by listing your bills by the day of the month that they are due.  For example, our mortgage payment is due on the first of the month, our cable is due on the ninth, etc.

3.  In this example, I listed the bills that are due quarterly and annually at the bottom of the page.  You could do it that way, or just mix them in to the list according to their due dates.

4.  Cross off months that the bills do not need to be paid.  For example, for some reason our auto insurance is on a ten month bill schedule.  Therefore, we don’t have to pay that bill in July or August.  So at the beginning of the year, I cross out those two months.  Additionally, I don’t have to pay school tuition or ballet lessons during the summer, so I cross out those months.  Some bills only come quarterly or annually, so cross out the months that you don’t need to pay them.

5.  Each month as you pay your bills, go down the “month” column and check off the boxes.  If you pay bills once or twice a month, simply check off all the bills you paid at a time.

Now you’ll never miss a bill or forget those bills that only pop up quarterly or annually!

    I really like what you do in organization… I don’t know why, but I cannot download your Monthly Bill Pay Schedule… any ideas? Thanks much.

    • Ginny says:

      Sandy, I’m sorry it’s not working for you. There are a few things you could try. First, make sure you are not using Internet Explorer for your web browser. Google Chrome, Safari, and Firefox seem to work the best with downloadable printables. Also, make sure you have the most up to date version of your pdf reader. Let me know if you still have trouble. :)

  2. Hello I am visiting via the Nester’s 31 days series. Your series is so inspirational and leaves me with such organized happiness.

    I too am participating in the series. My topic is “Decor To Adore~ finding your style”. I would like to invite you to stop by anytime.

    Have a beautiful day and a wonderful fall season.

    Thank you, Ginny. This is attractive and will help us keep track of all the bills. easier. It’s nice to have a one-sheet reminder.

  4. Ferly says:

    What an awesome series! Thank you for putting this together! I found you in Pinterest and will be spending time getting to know you and your blog for sure! I blog about organizing too and have a few printables myself, so I know how much work goes into those printables. Looking forward to the rest of the series!

    I love your website and all of the goodies you make available to us! Unfortunately, I can’t seem to get the grocery list to download. Is there a trick to it? Everything else has downloaded with no problems. Thanks!

  7. Carrie says:

    Thank you so much for this! I’ve struggled with finding a good way to keep track of our bills and this is PERFECT!

  8. Rebecca says:

    This. This is exactly what I have been searching for!!! I am so thankful that you somehow managed to step into my mind and make the most perfect thing. Is there a way it can be fillable so I can type my list of bills?

  9. Charron Ann says:

    This is a great idea! Thank you!

    Do you happen to have printable tabs to go along with this to make it all match?

    Ginny…..my sister and I just found you and of course…now we love you! I printed this out and I realized how horrible my handwriting is. I’m praying you can tell me there is a way to fill in my bills on my computer instead of writing them by hand. Please help!!! Thanks!

    • Ginny says:

      Hahaha! I’m glad to hear that you love me. ;) And, I’m glad you asked! These printables were not created with editable software, so unfortunately, you can’t type into them. But, stay tuned, because I have some big news coming soon!!

  12. KayLynn says:

    Thank you so much for this. I have been wanting to revamp my ‘bills to pay’ folder and this is just what I needed.

  13. Thank you, Ginny, for this series on home/money management. It’s helped me enormously and I’ve just found your blog today. Dave, my husband, died in 11/11 and the learning curve has been so steep. There have been a lot of kind people who have helped me but to find your site has been the best help of all. Thank you and God’s blessings on you, yours and the work of your hands and heart.

    • Ginny says:

      Oh, Sandra! I’m so happy to hear that I was able to help, but I’m so sorry to hear about your loss! :( I hope you are doing okay. Many blessings to you!

  14. Kristy says:

    I love all of your ideas for organization! I think I will download some of the monthly/weekly ideas and give it a try! Thanks for the inspiration~

  15. Martha says:

    Hi! You were so kind to post all these printables for free. Thank you so much! I absolutely love them :) One question though is there something wrong with the monthly bill schedule I can’t seem to get it to download.

    • Ginny says:

      Thanks, Martha. I’m glad to hear you like them. :) Make sure you have the most up to date version of your PDF software. That will usually solve any problems you may have downloading the files. You can download Nitro PDF Reader at nitroreader.com, or Adobe Reader at adobe.com/reader. Both can be downloaded for free.

  16. Christine Fulghum says:

  17. Racheal Hughey says:

    Oh my goodness I just had to say thank you so much. I am a first time mom and my son is going to be 3 in May and my boyfriend and I of 4 years decided it was time to stop playing house and make me his wife :) So I am really trying to get on track of everything it is going to take to really start being our own family and functioning house hold without mom and dads help.
    These have given me a lot of great ideas and started me on the rite track any tips or advice you may have please share you seam like an AMAZING woman one a lot of young ladies should strive to be like. Thank you again.
