On your main page of bloglovin you can… search for and follow your favorite blogs, categorize them however you like and read all unread posts either by date posted, category or blog name. One feature I like is being able to scroll through snapshots of posts from the main page. Then I can choose to click it and read it…or if it doesn’t strike muh fancy…I just hit Mark as read. And the BEST thing…you can comment on blog posts from Blog Lovin! Not like that jacked up reader that gets ya all crazy & turned around trying to comment.

Guess what?!

You can also import all the blogs you currently follow with Google Reader to bloglovin!!

Easy Peasy!  Just click here to get that done.

If you’re not on Google Reader or Blog Lovin…you REALLLLLLY need to check bloglovin out. It makes following your fav blogs easy as pie! Like sooo seriously.  I have the app on my phone so I can catch up when I’m at my kids baseball/softball/twirling practice…or riding shotgun with Dan the Man. I also like to read them first thing in the morning when I get to work. I have the little bloglovin icon on my toolbar and a little number will pop up on it showing how many new posts there are.

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY!!!!…..once you get all signed up, settled, and really start diggin the bloglovin atmosphere…..FOLLOW ME!!!

Original Post:

This is my kick @$$ Bill Book

20130120-144727.jpg

And I heart it so much!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE all things organized. Office & school supplies make me giddy.

This is what I was working with..

20130120-144852.jpg

It was more of a Momager.. It had everything from kids school things to meal planning.

It was great but I really needed a whole new system for our bills.

I came across this system in muh search

I ordered me some fancy smancy dividers and stuff from Office Depot online and got busy.

20130120-145511.jpg

I made two sets of dividers… one for our fixed monthly bills and the other for credit accounts. (More on them lata)

In the front pocket I keep post it’s
for reminders & stuff.

20130120-154939.jpg

I used these dividers to make my sections…

20130120-145813.jpg

I printed my design on card stock and put it in the clear page protector divider. They came with clear labels for the tabs so I printed the section name on them.

20130120-150613.jpg

In the first section Bills to Pay I put a pocket divider to hold my bills as they come in until I pay them..

20130120-151138.jpg

The next section is Calendar and Bill Schedule

20130120-151229.jpg

First in this section I have two lists that i can check off each month after I pay them. The first list is of my fixed monthly bills and the second page is a list of my credit accounts. I got the PDF for these lists here.

20130120-152211.jpg

Next I have monthly calendars for the year. I like to see what is do and when..calendar style. It helps me to see it visually. Like say a bill’s due date is on the weekend. I write that bill down on the calendar to be paid on Friday. I also like to highlight a bill after I’ve paid it. I know this can be duplicative of the lists.. But it works for me. I generally find free calendars on a variety of blogs.. But this particular set came from here.

20130120-152603.jpg

In the next two sections is where I used the dividers. Fixed Monthly Bills and Credit Accounts.

20130120-153423.jpg

Basically, there is a tab for each bill. Once I pay the bill, I file it behind the tab.

This has corrected a lot of problems for me.. I used to take all the bills after I paid them for the month and file them in a file cabinet. This obviously lasted a hot minute because I’m so lazy busy. So they pretty much ended up thrown in a big plastic tote.. Which made it hard to find anything when I needed to refer back to it.

20130120-155455.jpg

Now..I they are always filed as I pay them and easily accessible.

The best part..at the end of the year.. I will just stick the whole notebook on the shelf and start over.

No need to file the stuff at the end of the year..and no digging through files or boxes when I need something.

The last section All Other is just for various misc. I also added a pocket divider in this section to hold misc…like carbon copies of checks for little stuff I pay & ect.

20130120-154439.jpg

In the back of the binder I have this.. To ya know.. Remind me..

20130120-154830.jpg

So that’s that.

Isn’t it beautiful?

Twenty 13…go easy on me…

So…

2012 pretty much sucked.

I went in determined it would be the best year ever.

2012_fail

I had cray cray goals…like to have sex every single day of the year. Didn’t quite think that one through.

Pretty much everything about the year sucked big donkey dung.

Soo…I’m hoping the New Year is full of new beginnings…

I’m determined to set & reach some realistic goals this time…

I even ate the traditional grub to ensure success!

See the bite of cabbage at the bottom of the plate?
