Free Printable: Bill Pay Checklist

Monday is the first day of the month.  In this household, that means it’s time to start confirming that all of the bill payments for next month have been scheduled.  I personally use a checklist to ensure that I don’t miss a payment or make a late payment, saving money on late fees.

To help you, I’ve made my printable monthly bill pay checklist available for download.

If you’d rather have a single printable bill pay checklist for the entire year, you can download that file here.

Don’t forget to read the front page of the downloads!  That page contains the terms of use.  And if you like one or both of these downloads, I’d appreciate your sharing this page by going to the top or bottom of this post and clicking on the image that looks like the one below.

If you have suggestions for either checklist, let me know by leaving a comment below, and I’ll respond in a week or so.  (Be aware in advance that I intend to make fillable versions available in the future.  Click here to read more about those plans.)

Tips for Keeping Your Cool This Summer

Ordered and Organized | Tip for Keeping Your Cool This Summer

Today is the first day of summer.  I don’t know about where you live, but it is HOT here, and the air conditioning is running between 4 and 7 hours a day here already.  Given that cooling can make up 40% or more of your electricity costs during the summer (or so our HVAC tech informed me), consider a few tips to help you reduce your energy bill as much as possible this season.

Free Printable: Medication List and Medical History List

Like most people, I’ve never actually enjoyed completing the mountain of paperwork that is associated with medical provider visits.  I do understand, however, that the paperwork is necessary for my health and that the information needs to be accurate. 

Since I’m not always adept at remembering just when I had my appendectomy on the spot, I decided to create a medication list and a medical history/hospitalizations and surgeries list for me to take with me.  (A couple of my doctors’ offices have actually accepted the lists as part of their files rather than having me re-write the information.  Win!)

For those times when an ER or urgent care visit is necessary, I keep the updated lists in my Dropbox account so that I or my loved one can reference them in a hurry, even if they aren’t printed on paper.  I also keep a list of my kids’ medications and medical histories in Dropbox so that my husband can relay current and accurate information to their doctors if I’m not able to attend a visit for some reason.

I’ve included my forms here to help you create your own lists.  First download the medication list.  
Then download the hospitalizations and surgeries list.  
As usual, make sure you read the terms of use located on the first page of these printables before you use them!  🙂  And please share this page by clicking on this image at the top or bottom of this page. 

If you have any suggestions for these, please let me know in the comments below.  I’ll respond within a week or so.  


Free Printable: Package Tracker

I don’t know about you, but I do most of my shopping online.  For the sake of convenience and my budget, many items that my family needs or wants are purchased online and shipped directly to our house.

Sometimes I make only one purchase a week.  But sometimes, I make multiple purchases–cleaners and staples from Amazon’s Subscribe & Save, printer ink from Office Depot, clothes for my husband from Amazon Wardrobe, clothes for my kids from The Children’s Place, homeschooling materials from Rainbow Resource, garden seeds from Lowe’s.  I’ve even spent a few hundred dollars on the next two years of house projects just to get a relatively inexpensive home delivery of wood, topsoil, and marble rock from Lowe’s!

The problem is tracking all these parcels.  So sometime last year I created myself a list so that I can keep track of what I’ve ordered and when my items are expected to arrive.  If you shop online as much as I do, I highly recommend that you do the same.  And you don’t even have to create your own; you can download my package/order/happy mail tracker as a free printable using the link below.

Since this printable is free, I’d like to ask you to help me out by sharing a link to this page as a sort of “compensation” for making it available.  Just look at the top or bottom of this page and click on the image that looks like this.

Do make sure you read the terms of use on the first page of the printable before you use or share it!

Have any suggestions on how to improve this printable?  Leave me a comment below.  I’ll respond in a week or so.
