Who is the person that actually pays the bills via check or online? Is one of you better at paying the bills on time? Does one of you have more time to actually sit down and do it?
Darling Husband doesn’t want to be bothered. I’m anal about these type of things. So, he just forks over his bucks to me, putting some into his savings and keeping walking around money for himself. I pay all the bills with our funds, though we don’t have a joint account.

@mightywombat: no there is definitely no reason for that. I think I am going to close all but my savings, this is too many to keep track of!
@Somethingsoright: I actually own this book! Thank you for reminding me it is time to dig it up and actually use it haha
Thanks for the feedback everyone, lots of good ideas here! Really appreciate all the suggestions/advice! I think we are going to have a joint checking/joint savings and use that for everything, and all the savings we amassed before getting engaged we will keep in our personal accounts, and combine when we are ready to buy a house.
