Jen, set up autopays to a credit card. It's the only way I can get my bills paid on time! And then I have email reminders sent from my credit cards to remind me to pay them!
That's a fabulous idea!! I"m going to do it this weekend...if I remember...lol!
I agree about Autopay. I have everything setup that way and it helps immensely. One less thing I dont have to worry about! I highly recommend this..
OH my goodness, Jen, all of my bills are those past-due ones lately, too. I was never like that before Rod died! I just can't remember to send them!! ugh.
Oh wow! It makes me feel SO-O-O-O much better to read these! I was never late on a bill in my life. Now this past year, I'm hardly ever on time.
That's a frightening one, I've done it, too. You're not an idiot...you're just too distracted from trying to live for two. (((hugs)))
I have received two tickets since Danny died, never had one in the 46 yrs of driving- One for running a stop sign and the other for being on the tail end of a yellow/red light. The stop sign I swore I sopped at, but he officer said no, I even tried playing the widow card...NOT!! He just handed me the ticket and had me sign for it.
I am so glad I am not the only one who pays bills late. I write the checks I put them in my purse and drive by the post office at least 3 times a day, never stopping in. Cell phone and tv remote forget it. I have found them in the backyard, the medicine cabinet, the freezer. Sheesh I was beginning to think that I was getting dementia. I once left my daughters car at the repair shop and forgot about it after they called to say it was ready. It sat there for 3 more days. LOL
We blame my husband when we can't find things because he used to pull pranks so much :)
Here's one you might enjoy.. I made a couple of pans of lasagna on Sunday... one very small one for me.. after I packed up the two pans and delivered them to the perspective families I returned home to clean up the mess and bake my own personal pan. I threw it in the oven and cleaned up the kitchen.. an hour later I checked on it, removed the foil and thought it done.. took it out and saw on the side of the pan a clear type plastic.... OMG... I had put plastic wrap on the pan, then foil and put it in the fridge.. Forgot all about the plastic wrap when I baked it.. in the trash it went.. :( Toast for dinner again.. LOL
