It’s bill-pay day here at ThatGirlBlogs, and I’m reminded that I’ve been meaning to tell you about my new system. I am *not* an affiliate for this company, it’s just so darn useful I have to share. I should also tell you that the screenshot above is NOT reflective of my own income/bill situation, it’s downloaded from the app site.
You see, Bloggies, I’m a forgetful girl. ThatGuy has entrusted the bills/taxes/budget to me for 22 years and it’s definitely had its ups and downs. When we’re in a down? It’s usually because I’ve either:
- forgotten to pay a bill
- overpaid a bill
Overpaid? Yes, usually by paying twice in a month (forgetful), or by panicking and making a decision to pay something in full without regard to what’s coming up in the que.
This app totally saved me, and I’m not being overly dramatic when I say that.
Chronicle Bill Pay is something I found while searching the app store on my iPhone. I think I searched on something like, “finance,” or “bill reminder,” or, “broke and desperate,” I don’t remember. I chose it based on its endorsements (and a free trial, let’s face it).
I realize this graphic is hard to read, but I wanted to show the benefits listed on their site. I’m really only concerned with two things:
- I get bill reminder alerts whenever I want them
- It’s sync’d on the Cloud, so I can use the iPad, iPhone etc to check/pay/review bills
Here’s what the App will NOT do: create a budget or run a lot of fancy reports.
It’s strictly a bill paying app, but so far that’s all I’ve needed. You can print from it, but it’s not going to do any kind of in-depth budgeting.
How do YOU handle your bill paying/budgeting? Do you have any killer apps to share in the comments? I hate to download anything in the App Store that wasn’t endorsed by a friend, because I have so many apps I never even use. Your tips are always appreciated!
