Great Money Tip

As I was reading Marie Claire today I saw this article "The rich girl's money rules to live by" which talked about a great little secret to stay on top of your bills...

STAY ON TOP OF YOUR BILLS. Create an e-mail account — like — for electronic bill-delivery. Set up calendar alerts for each vendor three days before payment is due so you can read the statement and fix mistakes, like inflated restaurant tips. (Von Tobel says they're not uncommon.) Forget automatic transfers — "bills have errors!" says von Tobel. "You need to check them."

I really really liked this concept. However, I have my personal, my work and my business e-mails to handle so not sure if I could actually keep up with a 4th! The concept is good though.

Also note:
