Paying Bills on Time

What is the best way to keep up with your bills due dates? All of my bills come on different dates. When I call to inquire about a bill, I like to make note of the conversation and who I spoke to. I was keeping this information on a spreadsheet on my computer. When I am at work, I don't have access to a computer. Then sometimes I forget to even check the spreadsheet, because of other pending appointments. Any better suggestions?

When we ran a business before computers, I would keep a file folder holder on top of my desk. I had file folders for each week of the month and would put the bills for each month in their proper holder. Week 1 held bills for the 1st thru the 7th, week 2, 8th through the 14 and so on. I had no trouble keeping up with what was due with this system.

I use my google (gmail) calendar. I put the due date with a reminder alarm and when I pay the bill I add "PD" to the bill notation on that date.

The 'reminder' comes up on my I-phone as well as my computer at home. So I can deal with it anywhere/anytime!

When a bill comes in we write mail by date on the front them and then line them up in sequence due and put in a letter holder on desk. Easy to glance at, and by putting more than due date on envelope, every payment arrives on time.

I have all of my bills - credit card, electricity, gas, phone - come straight to my checking account and they are all paid automatically. If you have a regular paycheck coming in, this certainly simplifies things. Of course, if you don't have the money in your account, this doesn't work, but if you don't have the money to pay, paying on time is the least of your worries!
