But those times usually mean one heck of a lot of bills as well, since a lot of of companies and services charge their Half Year payment at about that time. That way, you get both payments for insurance, of both home and car, Electrical bill etc, as well as the regular monthly bills such as rent etc.
Even if one know you'll get all those bills at end of December as well as end of June, it doesn't make it way funnier to actually pay them. :(
At least, they're paid, and even if I wish the remaining number was way bigger, it at least feel nice to know that you're able to spend all of the money you've got left in the coming month. Knowing that everything that need to be payed, is payed.
I wish I was better at setting aside a certain amount every month, into a second account, which would be used only to pay for regular bills (Electric, Home and car insurance, rent, Cable-TV, Internet).
As for Internet, I sure hope the landlord, Sandvikenhus is really fast in installing Internet here. They've decided to install fast Internet in their own net, into all their 5,000 apartments, which should make 100 Mbits in both directions, avaible. The sort of good thing with that, is the fact that the cost of it will be on the Rent, and quite low as well (They decided it was better to own the net themselves, rather than use some kind of service-provider. Now you'll have access to Internet, and buy certain services you want from various providers such as Digital-TV, Phone etc, through that, rather than buy a whole package from one ISP).
