PROBLEM: The bills are piling up. You should keep them on the counter so they stay top-of-mind, but you’d prefer guests not see those embarrassing, red-striped ConEd envelopes. Naturally, you socked them away in some random drawer and now you’re getting five calls a day from a weird 800 number.
SOLUTION: Buy one of those cheesy, drugstore napkin holders and arrange bills from front-to-back in the order in which they need to be paid. Guests will be dazzled by your financial savvy.
Suzy Orman would be proud! So long as you, you know, pay them.
