Free Printable Monthly Bill Pay Checklist


Let's face it, we're all busy people and we're trying to make life as simple as possible. But, somethings are essential...like, well, bill paying. It's definitely not an item we can ever skip, no matter how busy we happen to be. Whether you're working to pay off debt, or just keep up with your regular utility and mortgage payments, these three versions of this monthly bills checklist are perfect to have on hand. I'm sharing some clever ways to reuse them month after, too.

You're certainly welcome to print out your bill pay checklist every month (sometimes a new, fresh print is a nice welcome), but you can also reuse the same sheet over and over with a couple of ideas, below. 

Home Binder Printables

This checklist is perfect to add in with my free Home Binder Printables. If you're not familiar with home binder systems and how they work, I have two sets of free Home Binder Printables that will explain everything. We have used our system for years to manage our own household. See both of my sets below:



Why Use a Monthly Bill Pay Checklist?

  • Accountability is my biggest reason for using a checklist. I have to visibly account for everything I pay, which is mentally helpful, month after month.
  • Another reason is illness or death. I know this is an uncomfortable topic, but after recently settling my dad's estate, this sort of thing is incredibly valuable. Before my dad passed away, he and I sat down and wrote down all of his accounts (sadly, we were aware his death was coming). If I hadn't had that list after he died, I would have been completely lost in an already difficult time. Even if death is not a reason, be sure another person in your household or family knows your finances (for the most part) and how they should handle things in case of emergency (you never know if you'll end up in a hospital for a length of time...it's always good to be prepared).
  • These checklists are great to refer to month after month, to make sure nothing is forgotten.

Above is an up-close, detailed look at this printable. 

How to Use a Monthly Bill Pay Checklist:

  • Start by jotting down all of your monthly accounts and bills in the left hand column of the checklist. 
    • For me, I like to organize them by due date. I usually do this by sorting my physical bills in a stack, earliest due on top.
    • I will add a small scrap of paper with the names of our paperless bills into the mix, in their appropriate order, as well. 
  • Once you start paying these bills, be sure to note their due dates and amount paid in the appropriate columns. 
  • If there is a remaining balance on a bill, add that in, as well (sometimes just seeing it in writing can be helpful with the will to pay it off). Plus, it's nice to see that balance get smaller and smaller.
  • Then be sure to check off the paid column.

How to Reuse this Print Over and Over

Self-Adhesive Laminating Sheets


As you can see from above, I like to laminate our monthly bill pay checklist with self-adhesive laminating sheets (there is no machine required for these) to use over and over with dry erase markers.
  • Grab self-laminating sheets here on Amazon.
  • I then add my checklist to my home binder (laminated) so I can reuse it every month (just punch holes in it). 
  • If you'd prefer, you can attach self-stick magnets to your laminated checklist checklist and attach it to your refrigerator to keep it front and center (and reminding you daily of what needs to be paid!). Grab the self-stick magnets here on Amazon.
  • Or, if you'd like a more decorative approach, these printables will also work inside of an 8x10 frame. Using the glass of the frame means you can also use these over and over with dry erase markers. 
  • Grab my favorite set of fine tip dry erase markers here on Amazon. The fine tip is so nice to use with checklists like these.
