Should you pay all your bills at once?
Pay once or twice a month, same day each month.

Try not to pay your bills more than twice a month, but make sure they’re not late, especially any debt or credit card bills.
Is it better to pay bills weekly or monthly?
Pay Your Mortgage Bi-Weekly Instead of Monthly
For those of us who own our home, our mortgage payment is usually the largest bill that we have each month. Most lenders will return payments if they are less than the total amount due. Another benefit of paying bi-weekly is that you’ll pay off your mortgage more quickly.

What is the 50 20 30 budget rule?
It’s the “20” in the 50/30/20 rule. It’s in a class all its own. You should spend at least 20 percent of your after-tax income repaying debts and saving money in your emergency fund and your retirement accounts. If you carry a credit card balance, the minimum payment is a “need” and it counts toward the 50 percent.
Can you go to jail for not paying your bills?
However, some states—roughly a third—still use jail as a method to coerce debtors to pay certain debts. Today, you cannot go to prison for failing to pay for a “civil debt” like a credit card, loan, or hospital bill. You can, however, be forced to go to jail if you don’t pay your taxes or child support.
