    I wish I could help, at the moment I am to scared to even open my bills until I think I have the money to pay them!

    We have a calendar hanging next to our desk, the bills hang in front of the picture bit and we write the due dates on the calendar. DH usually pays them online.

    When they arrive I put a reminder in my phone to pay them a few days before they are due and then hang them on a hook on the pantry door. That being said, most of our bills are direct debited so I just file away and don't need to think of them again.

    Magnet on the fridge. I don't really like having bills on show for the world to see when they come visiting but if I put them in a folder or something I always loose them or misplace the folder.

    In a folder and I just write down what's due. It's meant to be bad luck to put bills on your fridge and instead you should put positive things on your fridge like holidays etc.

    I don't know how right that is but I stopped putting bills on my fridge

    Usually on the fridge.

    Credit card bills don't get displayed on the fridge - DH and I both make regular payments off our cards so there's no need to have it on the fridge as a reminder.

    My Telstra bills get sent to me via email. I save them to a folder in my work computer. I always seem to remember to pay them as they are always due about the 17th of each month.

    I'm good at paying bills, but rubbish at filing them in an orderly fashion afterwards!

    I have 3 manilla folders on my desk in a little metal folder holder. I have one folder for incoming bills, a 2nd folder for paid bills and a 3rd folder for bills paid relating to our investment property (I need to keep these for tax purposes).

    I only keep the 2nd folder for about 12 months as it helps for budgeting purposes, but I usually chuck it's contents after that as no need to keep.

    If necessary, I will put due dates of bills on our wall calendar. Most of our bills are auto paid by direct debit anyhow.
