Well the Holidays are over and the New Year has officially begun. I don’t know about you but when the New Year rings, I start thinking about finances, taxes and bills. I’m sure it’s a combination of all of the money we spent for Christmas but also realizing that it’s time to whip our finances into shape.
If you’re not organized with your finances, you can be. I love checklists where I can see what I need to pay, how much I need to pay and then be able to check off when I’ve paid it. It’s not only great for organization but also for a sense of accomplishment. I love being able to check things off. And if you’re following Dave Ramsey’s methods, this is a great way to keep track of your ‘debt snowball.’
Side note, I have loved reading Dave Ramsey’s books. He has a proven track record of helping people get out of debt. We can all do it! The economy is tough and it’s taken me a long time to realize that I can’t turn to my credit cards when we’re short of money. But now it’s time to dig our way out.
FREE Bill Payment Checklist Printable
Here’s one printable that I’ve created and use. It’s an easy way to track for the entire year. Just click here to grab the Free Bill Payment Checklist Printable.
Feel free to click the “Pin” button on the image and pin it on Pinterest, share it with your friends, etc. I hope you find it useful.
I have other printables that I’ve created to keep me organized too. I’ll be posting them periodically so check back. You can also join my mailing list so that you get an email notification of any new posts.
Here’s to a great New Year of being organized and getting our finances in check! Good luck!

I use a checklist and would be lost without it! Its a time saver and saves me from paying late fees!
Angie Fiack says
I’ve used a similar chart for years. It really works well.
Gina H. says
Great idea. Just printed mine. Thanks!
laurie damrose says
I am printing one out right now!
Robin Abrams says
I love this form .I am bad at if the bills come in to early I forget about them and end up paying late. With this form I can record them and not forget them 🙂
Thank you for sharing this. Have a wonderful day.
Margaret Smith says
This is so helpful in keeping to a budget

Caroline Wampler says
Love this! I have only paid a late bill once or twice, but it is terrifying to me! Better to stay organized!
I love this! it will work for me and my 20 year old son!
Judy Thomas says
Very handy 🙂 I just make little notes on a bit of paper or in a notebook. This way is so much better than mine !
This is a great idea. You may also want to have a list of email websites or mailing addresses for when a regular bill does not show up on time – maybe it was lost in the mail, etc.
Danielle Jones says
Very good idea. It’s awful having something cut off simply because you thought you had paid the bill but had forgotten to actually pay it.
Dawn Rader says
this is a great idea. sometimes it’s hard to budget on a fixed income….constantly juggling…
Cher Garman says

This is a wonderful idea!
Thank you so very much! =)
I love this idea. Does the chart print without the word proof across it?
Thomas Gibson says
Great idea. I suppose after I print out enough sheets to cover my bills, I can add Printing Costs as another bill.

A great way to keep track of bills

This is a very good idea! Keeping this on the fridge with the calendar is a great idea. Then you can also add costs each month and tally it up at the end of the year and see where you can cut costs!
Athena c says
Oh awesome. Right now I use my phone for everything & I had to get a new phone a few months ago & I lost everything so I’m glad there’s a printable that’s easy to use & something I won’t lose if lose everything on my phone.

This is good for those that don’t already have something in place. My husband takes care of our bills and he uses an Excel spreadsheet that he downloaded from Microsoft. It also has a debt pay-off schedule built in, which is nice. Very quick and easy way to track your progress!
Thanks for sharing this one. This would really helps a lot.

this is an awesome idea! I’m a bookkeeper so I have something similar in place, only mine is an overly complex excel spreadsheet. if I ever die suddenly and someone else has to take over my finances, no one will be able to figure out what I was doing there!
crystal lane says
Lord knows I need this thank you for sharing.
RICHARD HICKS says
Very useful list. Great way to make sure you don’t overlook something
Jennifer Hiles says
Another great printable that will come in very handy. Every month I worry that I’m forgetting a bill or two. In fact, only this morning on my drive to work I remembered I haven’t paid my car payment so I had to put a note in my phone to remind me to do it when I get home!
Catherine Haynes says
I have a home made version of this on the back of a piece of cardboard, it really helps to know what is due and when.

This is a great printable to use to make sure you catch all of your bills on time.

Sandra Beeman says
Trying to get a grip on finances after the holidays can be daunting. I try reach month to be hyper aware of the next months bills. It gives me just a little edge to avoid a January unwanted surprise.
Very useful. Thank you
Stacy Ferrell says

Trameka Wilson says
I really need to start using something like this because I need guidance.
Amanda A says
I love this! I am such a planner and organizer but not so much my husband. This is an awesome little way to keep better organized.
Susan Johnson says
Most of my bills are either autopay, or my accounts are set up to send me reminders to pay. Thankfully, I don’t have too many bills, so I keep track fairly easily without a checklist. I can see how this is helpful, and gives you an accurate money amount that goes out each month and where it is being spent.
Thanks for the tip! good idea
amy m says
i use something like this and it works wonders. great idea for newlyweds
Sandra Crispo says
This looks very practical gonna show it to my hubby and see if he wants to implement!!
Judy Mitchell says
this would be great because sometimes hubby pays bills and sometimes i do so very easy to check what is still due. thank you
maureen simiyu says
this is a great tool!!
Thank you for sharing this free printable with everyone, I plan to use it in my financial binder. I do have a question about it: I noticed that the checklist doesn’t contain a column for Dec is there a reason for this?
Oh my goodness! How is it that I never noticed that. 😀 It just must have cut off. I’ll get it edited and updated. Thank you for pointing that out!
thanks sooo much ive been looking for a bill checklist for atleast an hour.
