One reason to use a tickler file

A tickler file can help put bills in an organized place on the day they’re to be paid. (Or, a few days before they’re to be paid, if you mail them out.)

Someone I love just keeps them in a stack and sifts through them every few days, wasting precious time she could be spending reading her favorite books.

I had to mail one of her bills a few days ago via USPS Priority Mail so it wouldn’t be late. Why? She misplaced the envelope.

If she had this system, 1) she would’ve known where it was, and 2) it would’ve been sent it out on time. Well, as long as she checks it daily like she’s supposed to.

I know online payments would save her money on stamps, but she’s doesn’t want to change that habit.
