I have been trying to do one of the things from the Jerrold Mundis book, the getting out of debt & living prosperously one. I try to pay a bill within 24 hours of getting it. I know I'm giving up float, but it feels really nice to not even have to wonder if I paid the Blue Cross bill already, or to have to check the rack where we keep the bills to see if there are any to pay that day. They show up, I pay them within 24 hours, they're off my mental list. It's nice.

Once again, yes, I know I've giving up float. :-)
