4. Filing your bills

Once your bills are paid, file them in the way that’s easiest for you to manage. If you’re not a file puncher, don’t fool yourself that you will start punching and filing. The road to hell is paved with good intentions ;)

Rather use a filing system where you simply drop the paper in and it’s done. Like this picture.

What kind of filing system do you prefer? Punch and file in a binder, or drop in a hanging file?

If you need help getting your finances organised, check out 10 steps to your financial freedom now.

Hi Diane

I'm feeling GREAT! Really I am - i've been very very blessed that this pregnancy has been so easy apart from the fatigue in the first 11 weeks.

Our doc has said that our goal is 36 weeks (which is 5 August) so that's what we're working on as our due date!
