Getting Finances In Order - Part 5 -

In January you made up your files and filed away all of your old bills and receipts.

In February you set up your end of year tax file.

In March you started maintaining your files.

In April you filed your taxes.

In May you will continue filing your paid invoices and bills in your files. Pay your bills on time, become familiar with your due dates and make sure you are paying everything on time. Late fees are a huge waste of money. If you have that extra money, instead of giving it to credit companies, put that extra money in a savings account.
