Oh that sucks!  Maybe you could put reminders on your computer for all your bills?  I’m obsessed with Quicken for my finances but you could get the same thing for free at mint.com.

No late notice? That’s so weird! Can you put your bills on automatic pay through online banking or your credit card?

I’ve done the same thing, shove bills here and there and totally forget about them.  So frustrating but there’s just so much paper that comes to the house constantly it’s overwhelming sorting through it all the time.

I used to be really bad about that with the cable bill but I did direct deposit and now every month it automatically gets paid from my bank. Can you maybe look into something like that?

I get e bills for everything.  I like it because it means less stuff in the mail box!  As soon as I get it, I schedule the payment.  Everything is automatic except for the utilities because that amount varies every month.

Don’t beat yourself up! You’ll always remember it now.

I do the paperless thing too and for those accounts that I can, I set up a maximum to pay and the date to pay it so it automatically comes out, so I don’t even have to remember to go online to pay them. I do this with our electric and cable bills. We just moved to a new city and got our first water bill, so I’m seeing if I can set this up for them as well.

Don’t beat yourself up about it though. We all make mistakes.
