So let's say I was going overseas for a month, be it personal or for work or whatever. In that time I'm going to inevitably get bills and my question is... how do people normally deal with that?
If I'm billed a recurring amount each month I could just pay double now and hope that that extra amount gets credited to my account. This, however, does assume that I have the ability to do that and if I got paid on a weekly or bimonthly basis or whatever that might not be the case. ie. just because you can't pay a month early doesn't mean you can't pay on the actual due date.
If the billing amount is variable I guess I could just pay 3x my current bill and hope that that extra 2x amount covers me for next month and leaves me some credit for next month to. But that approach, too, makes certain assumptions about my financial situation.
I could have a neighbor or a friend open my bills for me and tell me what they are and I suppose I could pay from my laptop, overseas, but I might not want my friends opening my mail.
How have ya'll dealt with this?
