Switch to Online Bill Pay
Save yourself a stamp, and avoid late fees by paying your bills online. You can pay direct to your creditors, or set up automatic bill pay with your bank; and take yourself out of the equation entirely.
With online Bill pay you can schedule when your bills are paid, and you can even set up reminders for your monthly regular bills. Use your smart phone or your calendar on your computer to set up reminders of when to pay bills. Use the technology that you have and put it to good use. So you remember to go in and pay them.
With on line bill pay you will have a record of when and how much you pay. (some banks now even total or having a running total for how much you have paid to that person). Some banks will stand behind you for a payment that the company receiving it says you did not pay, when you did. No more, the check is in the mail, no more waiting for the company to post your payment, no more wondering did they get it, no more forgetting to pay a bill, no more late fees.
