in our house i was the one who pays our utilities like electric and water. aside from that i also pay for my phone bill and credit card. it is really tough doing all the budgeting and bills paying that's why sometimes i wish i can find more ways to earn money. lol.

good for you that someone is taking care of your bills at home, it is really hard to pay utilities alone you know.

I don't have to worry about that all my utilities are covered in my rent. If you don't live alone the bills should be split in my opinion but I guess it depends on what your arrangements are maybe one person pays some of the bills and the other person pays the others.

yes, bills should be split but in my case since my family members lost their jobs, i need to take charge of all our finances.

Because my household consists of just myself, I pay ALL the bills- well at least the ones I can afford at the time (smile). In order to make a little extra cash I took on a small part time job, but working a full week then having to do that 2-3 nights a week has really made me feel exhausted. I'm not too sure how much longer I can keep the two up, although I like the money, it was used for extras that I could do without if needed ;)

Me also since I'm a single mom and no one have do this for me, and YOur right It's very hard to budget the money we have in these bills, specailly you have a children who go to school and have plenty of expenses on their schools and snacks.

all the working family members contribute to form the pool account the payment is then done from that account
