Paying bills

In A Real Budget, paying bills is scheduled twice a month. Each Budget column shows:

Since the money for the payments and set asides is in the Budget's checking account on the first column date,

In other words, there is no reason not to complete paying all bills that show as ready for payment on the Budget column date. This is a major advantage of using A Real Budget: Being able to pay bills on time only twice each month. That being said, you can pay your bills when you want to from the first column date through the day before the second column date. When you exit the "Pay Bills" window without all items checked as "Pd" you have the option of saving the checked items. This let's you reopen the "Pay Bills" window and continue where you left off.
