billsSome months it seems harder than others to pay all those bills, doesn’t it?  There seems to be more month than there is money.  But paying the bills is a necessary evil in order to keep the lifestyle you currently enjoy.  So how can you reduce or change those payments so that you can stay above water each month?

There are a few things you can do to keep yourself afloat.  First, you may want to reevaluate your current way of organizing.  If your bills are scattered in different places, try placing them all in the same place and in order of when they are due.  It might help if you know exactly how much is owed and when.  You can then compare your bills to your income to see when would be the best time to pay and not leave yourself without any cash if you need it.

You can also call the creditor to see if there is anything you can do to change the way you pay that could help your financial situation.  Some companies offer discounts if you opt to pay online, go paperless or utilize an automatic payment option.  It may not be a lot, but it might be enough of a discount to help.

You may also be able to change the monthly date in which your payment is due.  It might not seem like it would help, but if you can split your bills up so that you are not paying them all on the same day you might be able to organize your funds a bit easier.
