Here is a little guide to an effective way to handle bills:
1.Go to the mailbox daily
Check for new mail and empty the box immediately. If possible put a sign at your mailbox which tells the postman which kind of free mail you never want to receive, like that free newspaper you never read or the heaps of ads you throw away.
2. Open bills immediately
If you receive a bill, open the letter as fast as possible and throw away the envelope.
3.Collect all unpaid bills in a file
Get yourself a file or a box or a register in which you collect all the unpaid bills.
4. Pay it regularly
Once in a month, visit your bank or post office and pay all the bills in the box.
5. Archive the receipts
After paying attach all the receipts to the covering letter and store them in a register at best just after returning from the bank or post office.
