Story Behind

The 5 Dollar Bill Helper....

I was a young mom learning to pay bills. Traditional methods were not working for me. My bills kept increasing and I had trouble balancing my money from paycheck to paycheck. I would often forget that I wrote a check or spent money because I thought all my bills had cleared.

I tried using other apps (X); But when I didn’t have the money to cover the bill, it was suggested that I get a loan! The(X) app, I used, also wanted me to hook up my bank account. At the time, I did not feel comfortable doing that. I didn’t understand this new highly integrated technology. The (X) app would not allow me to successfully use manual entries and would only update status unless I linked my bank account. I knew I had to do something.

I quickly learned I needed to “Balance” my bills. I decided to create my own spreadsheet and keep it simple. I began working long hours and eventually had trouble updating my spreadsheet. It was too complicated. So, I added columns that I thought would help. I then began adding formulas to help with the calculations. I soon realized I needed color coding. I still had to do everything manually and sometimes the formulas would get messed up. But overall, I could keep making it work with some determination.

Here is what I learned

Although most pay checks are weekly or bi-weekly, billing dates tend to fall into different pay periods. This causes an imbalance in spending money or a false sense of wealth. Monies are then spent that should have been allocated or set aside for upcoming bills.

When it comes time to pay those bills, we are then faced with the thought that we do not have enough money to pay them. It starts to feel like a constant struggle. After several formula mishaps, I decided to create an app that would encompass all the great things a spreadsheet could provide without the hassle of fixing formulas.

My solution

I created the 5 Dollar Bill HelperTM with its trusty sidekick, the Bill BalancerTM mobile application. This app can stop this vicious cycle of financial imbalance. The user can view the current and upcoming pay periods with the bills listed. If an imbalance is noted, the user will have the ability to apply the Bill BalancerTM. The Bill BalancerTM splits monies from one pay period to another.

This feature can be edited, and manually split payments can be entered. This app helps users to balance bills and spending money. Savings can be included, if desired and is recommended. The 5 Dollar Bill HelperTM was created using real life situations. Learn the right way to balance your bills. This is the easiest and most effective app to use. If an app is too complicated or cumbersome you won’t continue to use it. So, we developed the 5 Dollar Bill HelperTM with everyone in mind.
