This column holds the name of the bill that needs
to be paid. The first description is setup as Monthly Income. It
is the description for the total amount for the month that will be
used to pay all of the monthly expenses. One of the convenient features
of BILL ORGANIZER is that you only have to enter the descriptions once.
When the next month is created all of the descriptions that you entered
will be carried over.
This column holds your best guess of the amount
of the bill that you will receive. Housing may be a constant from
month-to-month and so would rarely need to be adjusted. Your electric
bill may change up or down depending on the season of the year so
you may need to change the estimate when you start a new month. When
the next month is created the Typical amount will be carried over.
This is the day of the month when you expect to
receive the bill. Most of them come about the same time each month.
When the next month is created the Arrive day will be carried over.
This is the day when the payment must reach
the company that you owe. This is a good day to track over several
months because some companies have been known to shorten this “grace” period
so they can get payment sooner and making it more likely that you will
be late with your payment incurring a late fee. When the next month
is created the Due day will be carried over.
You put an X in this column when the corresponding
bill arrives. This confirms that you did receive the bill.
This is the amount due as stated on the bill that
you received. This amount rounds to the nearest dollar so it may
not display the exact amount of the bill but it is good for estimating
This column holds the day when you actually pay the bill. If the bill is mailed,
it will be the day the check was written and not the day the payment is
actually posted. It is important to allow enough time for the check to
arrive and be posted before the due date.
