Bills, bills, bills. They arrive very frequently to our mailboxes or inboxes. They form mounds of paper piles and take over email messages. Typically one person in the house is assigned the daunting task of paying the bills and making sure they are paid on time. Sometimes the task is reluctantly shared by more than one person. If you are unfamiliar with how your spouse, partner or parent pays the bills and you have to assume the task for them due to a “life event” the responsibility can become very overwhelming and stressful.
