Bill Payment Tracker

Bills, bills, bills.  Anyone else brought back to 1999 and the Destiny’s Child song?  Just me?  As usual.  Anyway, this post is less to do about Beyonce, Kelly, and Michelle, and a whole lot more about not getting late fees.  Back when I was young and single, I had like 3 bills to pay a month.  But when one marries and becomes a home owner, bills tend to multiply.  A lot.  Enter a bill payment tracker.
