Share Record-Keeping Tasks

If there’s more than one responsible adult in your household, you can share record-keeping and bill-paying duties as long as you both agree who will complete certain tasks in a timely manner and communicate regularly about what’s been done.

In many households, one adult may be better-suited to record-keeping and financial tasks. If that’s the situation in your household, be sure to keep other family members informed and to show them — or a trusted friend — where your records are stored and how they’re organized.
