    • Hi Karla, I tried printing from three different browsers, and I wasn’t able to replicate the problem. I’d give it another try, and if that still doesn’t work for you, let me know what browser and operating system you’re using, and I’ll see if I can figure out what’s going on.

  1. Hi Erin,
    I am still having trouble printing this one. I was able to print the auto bill pay tracker. So, I find it odd that the bill pay checklist is giving me trouble. It appears like it has been enlarged and that I am only getting the lower right hand corner. I will try a different browser and see if that helps.

    Karla

  2. Hello again,
    I was able to print using a different browser. It wasn’t working with my google chrome, but did work with mozilla firefox.
    Thanks for all the cool stuff,
    Karla

  3. Awesome website! Now kept in my favorites ๐Ÿ™‚ will be coming back for more printables. Love the bill pay checklist! Keep up the great work ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks, Alexis. I’m happy to hear you like the printables. There a lot of fun to put together ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Is there a way to save this after I type all my information in? When I save it, it only saves a blank version. Also, I’m unable to get titles across the top to print. I’m using chrome….maybe I need to try another browser?

    • Hi Karen,

      Chrome is definitely the issue (their pdf reader is terrible). If you open the bill pay checklist with Adobe Reader, you’ll be able to save the file with your text in it, and the titles across the top will print properly. You should have Adobe Reader on your computer, but if you don’t, it’s available as a free download on Adobe.com.

  5. Love this Bill Pay Checklist! What program did you use to make it? I want to make a similar one but change the top headings. Thanks!

  6. Is there any way to modify this list to have different amounts for each months when it comes to a bill? For example, my electricity varies each month but the way this checklist is done, I can only enter one amount and it will apply to each month. Does this make sense?
    Thanks in advance.

    • Yep, that makes sense. One option is to leave the amount blank for the bills that vary each month. If you look at the photo in the post, you’ll see that that’s what I did when I set my own checklist up. I’m not sure how else to handle it, but I’ll give it some thought. That’s often how my next printable comes about ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I love the printable and was wondering if there would be any way for the amount column to automatically add a total. That helps with budgeting! Also, is there a way to get a second page without having to start a new template?

    Love your site!
    Thanks, Laura

    • Hi Laura,

      Those are both good ideas. Let me give it some thought, and see what kind of solution I can come up with.

  8. I love this checklist!!! I needed something like this to make my bill paying easier!!! Do you by chance have some type of check list for internet passwords and user ID’s!? I made my own a long time using a template but I don’t have that anymore.

  9. Dear Erin,
    Your style rocks! Thank you for the free printables, they are just what I was looking for!

    God Bless,
    Zipporah

  10. Thank you so much for creating this template! I have been looking for and trying to create this very thing! You are amazing and very gifted!
    God bless,
    Teneka

  11. I love the bill pay checklist. I printed off a Dr. Visit log which will be great for keeping up with for taxes. I was wondering if you have something for prescriptions.

    • Thanks, Michelle. I haven’t done anything for prescriptions, but it’s a great idea. Maybe I need to put that on my to-do list.

    • Just click on any of the fields that you’d like to fill in. Then, start typing. If you’re using the latest version of Adobe Reader (available as a free download), you’ll also be able to save the checklist with your changes.

  12. Hi, This sheet is great!! I think if you make the sheet for only 6 months at a time you could widen the check off columns to add space to enter the amounts for fluctuations.

  13. THIS!! I LOVE this! I add up my bills as they come in the mail every month and then I simply check them off as they are paid. Once they are all paid, I print the sheet and keep it in my records. I also use the “Notes” bar for any confirmation number I am given and/or write the day they are paid. Thanks so much for creating this! ๐Ÿ™‚

    -Laura C.

    • Glad you like it:)

      We also write down the confirmation numbers. It’s nice to have proof you paid, just in case.

  14. Hey Erin! Wanted to share how much I LOVE your page. I’ve been browsing your page at work, I even skipped lunch to go to “Office Depot” to buy binders LOL. I work a lot and frankly, I’m tired after work so organizing isn’t on my to-do list, but I’m making time for this. Sincerely, lazy in my 20’s, gonna regret it one, day but this saved my lifeeeee haha. Keep it the AWESOME ideas!

    • Glad you’re enjoying my website, and happy to hear I’ve turned someone else on to binders ๐Ÿ™‚ They take a bit of work to set up, but it’s so worth it. I’ve been using my binder system for a couple years now, and they’re still as neat and organized as the day I set them up. Once you find a system that works, it just seems to stay organized on its own. My kids even know where to put stuff — and that’s HUGE.

  15. Thank you for creating the bill pay checklist and for sharing it. It was a great tool to keep me budget-minded this year. I came back to print it again for next year so I can be razor-sharp focused on reaching my financial goals for 2016. Happy Holidays!!

  16. THE PAY CHECKLIST IS WONDERFUL WISH I HAD IT YEARS AGO !!! YES IF YOU COULD MAKE ONE FOR RX THAT WOULD BE AWESOME ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Hi. I just wanted to say how much I love this bill tracker. I used it last year, and have looked at different ones to possible use this year. However, yours is the one that i love and have come back to. It has everything I want. Thank you so much.
    Erin

  18. Greetings! ANy chance you can make this and excel template to work with? I just need to add 2 more rows and a few come columns.

  19. This Printable Bill Pay Checklist is AWESOME! I take care of our household bills and my moms! It can get confusing at times with autopay, online pay and check payments! Thank you so much for sharing the wonderful tool! God Bless You!

  20. WOW!!! LOVE THIS!!! Nice work!
    Is there a way to save our actual personal bill pay checklist or can we just print the form?

    • Yep. If you open it with Adobe Reader, you should be able to type all of your bills into the checklist. Then, save it.

  21. Thank you very much, Erin. You are organized and make me feel like I can be too. Have a great weekend.

  22. Hi, I am trying to print the bills checklist, it is exactly what I am looking for. I am using mozilla firefox but it is enlarging the checklist and only printing a quarter of the checklist. Any suggestions????

    • Hi Lisa,

      Try opening the file with Adobe Reader (it’s free, and should already be installed on your computer). That used to be the only option for pdfs, but in recent years a lot of browsers have built their own pdf readers and they aren’t nearly as good. Kind of ironically really, because pdfs were specifically designed so they would open and print the same for everyone. Hopefully it’ll get back to being that way, but in the mean time, pdfs continue to work properly in Adobe Reader. Hope that helps ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Thank you so much for making this. It’s clear and reusable and I love the minimal work I need to do to customise it to my needs!

  24. I love your bill pay checklist. It comes in handy when it comes to bill paying every month! This is so awesome and it rocks. Thanks for the free printable to help me organize my binder much better.

  25. Love the free printables! I’m learning how to budget for the fist time at 39 years old and your website has been VERY helpful. Thank you & best wishes.

  26. I cannot get it to edit. Before my computer updated to windows 10 it worked but now it doesn’t. Please help.

    • Hey Necole,

      I bet when you updated to Windows 10, it made Microsoft Edge (formerly Internet Explorer) your default browser. Their built-in pdf reader is lousy, and you’re right, it won’t let you edit the bill pay checklist. Up until a few years ago everyone used Adobe Reader to open pdfs, and that was brilliant. It works every time. I would recommend making that your default pdf reader. It’s free, and will ensure that pdfs open and work properly. (You can download it online, if it isn’t already on your computer). Alternatively, I tested out this pdf in Chrome this morning, and it was allowing me to edit. But really, Adobe Reader is the best option. Ironically, pdfs were created to be universal files that would open the same for everyone. Now, that browsers have gotten into making their own pdf readers, that doesn’t hold true. I’m hoping at some point they’ll get it ironed out, but in the mean time, I’m just trying to steer people around the problem. Hope that helps ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. Hey Erin!
    I am using Acrobat Reader with Microsoft Edge, and it isn’t letting me add more line (to add more bills).
    *For now I am just downloading another List and naming it differently (MthlyBillList2)…
    Thanks in advance! You are awesome!!!!
    Genna

    • Hi Genna,

      Unfortunately, that file isn’t set up to allow you to add more lines. I had one other reader that was wanting to do that recently. I think I probably just need to build a second page for that file. That sounds like a good January project ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. love this, thanks so much for saving me valuable time this new year and organizing my monthly bills. I am also customizing this for my one time expenses! thanks again!

  29. Thank you so much for your ministry. I not only print several for myself but for my Sisters-in-Christ to share your product.
    God Bless

  30. Thank you so very much for making this available. As a newly single mom now in charge of bills, I feel like I have a fighting chance to pay on time, and not incur late fees. #goals

  31. Excellent tool to help me and my family better track expenses and insure fiscal responsibility for what little we have as this new administration changes programs to suit the rich and not the hard working voters.

    • Thanks, Dani. Unfortunately, there isn’t a way to add more lines. I would recommend printing a second page for now. I realize more and more people are using the file by just saving it to a device, so I may need to think about reworking the bill pay checklist to accommodate that.

  32. This is really great, it is exactly what my son and grand daughter need. Now they can keep better track of their finances and ensure that no bill has been forgotten.

  33. This is an amazing free!! printout. Thank you I have been trying to get organized and this is the kind of thing that I have been looking for. I love the colors and that it is for the whole year so you only have to print it once, plus it makes for less things to have to look at when planning the monthly budget. Thank you for this. I will definitely be coming back to your webpage.
