this seems a good idea for me to start doing:
If you are trying to keep an eye on your spending, try this: Print the monthly statement of your online bill pay. Highlight the expenses that went to something besides the necessities (like shopping sprees, expensive nights out, etc). Take a look at everything highlighted and see how you could cut back. This is a great way to hold yourself accountable for your spending. The initial set up might be somewhat of a hassle, but once the initial time is invested, thereâ€™s not much to lose. Sorry Uncle Sam, but the times are changing! So save some time and sanity and get organized with online bill pay.
