Weekly Tip: Sign up for automatic payments.

If you haven’t already, think about signing up for automatic payments. Everything is done online today, and going paperless can be incredibly helpful. For one, you won’t have to remember about making a payment each month. By using paper, it’s very easy to get overwhelmed and forget about one bill or another. And if you do forget one, you’ll have to deal with extra fees, interest charges, and more. You can end up lowering your credit score and in a lot of debt by missing a payment due date. But by signing up for automatic payments, you won’t have to worry about simply forgetting.
Signing up for automatic payments also means you’ll be doing yourself a favor by organizing your finances. In the past, when everything came by mail, you probably had a bunch of old bills and papers lying around collecting dust. By going paperless, you can set up direct deposits, automatic transfers, and payment reminders. It will be much easier for you to access your finances, and it will even make your home less cluttered. 
All you have to do is go online or call your credit card provider, and register for online payments. Signing up will insure that you don’t make the simple mistake of forgetting to pay a bill.
