Disorganization strikes again

July 12th, 2006 at 08:25 am

Had a scare this morning--

I've been trying catch up on paperwork today, as it's become a mess again. Because I've been spending so much money lately, I thought I'd better go onto all our banking and cc websites to make sure I'd recorded everything.

To my horror, I noticed I hadn't even scheduled the payment on the Sony card, which is due Friday, the day after tomorrow. If I did it the normal way from my bank website, they wouldn't get it til Monday. Frown Luckily, I could sign up on the Sony card website to initiate the payment from their end. I'll get credited for it today.

I feel very lucky, indeed, because sometimes when you try to set up transfers like this, it takes a few days while they send test amounts. If that had been the case, I couldn't have avoided a late payment.

I've got to get better at keeping up with this stuff, no matter how busy life gets. And no matter how hot it is! (I do paperwork upstairs in a room with no a/c, and some days I just can't face it.)

    Same thing happened to me a few months back with my car payment. It's due on the 16th and I set up the payment each month online. Completely forgot to do it, and I didn't realize it until the 31st when I was calculating my net worth and saw that the debt didn't go down! I got the payment in on the last day possible (with a $9.50 fee), but luckily, it wasn't recorded as a skipped payment or a missed payment. Lucky.
