My list is on my Bookmarks tab on my laptop. (Favorites for you IE folk --I'm in Firefox.) They're listed at the top of the Bookmarks list, in order of statement date. Every time (literally every time) I log on, I check the bookmarks tab to see which accounts are coming up next, so that I'm always on top of my PIF'ing.

I have a pretty flaming case of adult ADHD, and visual cues work best for me. Since lates are my only baddies, I'm hyper-sensitive to the slightest possibility of missing a payment.

So this is what I see when I log on and click Bookmarks:

Photobucket

(USAA is at the top, because it's my primary bank.) I completely realize that this is deeply bizarre to those of you who live and die by Excel and so forth, but as I've said in other areas, the best system is what works specifically for you.

That's one sweet list!!!  I might just have to rename my accts like that!  I KNOW those dates are the due dates. I might have to toss in 2 dates....1 - due...2 - posts to CRA's  hahahahaha

In fact, those are the statement dates, not the due dates. I'm one of those PIF before statements folks.

The joys of working night shifts on IT Support... I just have to sit here and wait for people to call me with things to fix - all the proactive stuff has already been done... I swear this is most of the reason that I have done well on scores.  The excel list, I have similar bookmarks on my Firefox Bills Section, and a load of time all along with this website

 

Ha just got scores for DH and I fwiw (from my mortgage preapproval - eek)

               April 2008         July 2009

DH TU       526                     680

DH EQ       527                    645

DH EX       531                     663

                October 2008*    July 2009

ME TU        618                   719

ME EQ       600                   691

ME EX        612                   703

 *first time I had a score

 

I'll be paying down my balances (well AU accounts which are the only ones with balances) to less than 1% on one card at the end of the month so hopefully both our scores will get a little more nudge then Smiley Very Happy

 

I'll stop hijacking this thread now.

Re: I'm In To Deep!

Apparently things are really slow at the hospital tonight (or they are all too busy to call me with IT Problems)

My excel worksheet is there - with all the formulas alredy included. You will need to copy and paste once you have put in your info with creditors, utility companies and due dates but if anyone wants to try it then knock yourselves out and feel free to PM if you want any help Smiley Very Happy

That makes SO much more sense.  In my notebook, on the left in the notes...statement dates.  I've been doing the "pay by statement date" for the last several months. Once I realized that that is the date they report to the CRA's!  Took me forever to realize that!  Duh! Smiley Tongue
