Definitely pay rent first. Some landlords will begin eviction proceedings if you are over two weeks late.

Rent
Call the utility companies, they will typically extend. You might even be able to make arrangements on their website.

Do you have enough food?

Rent, then utilities (power, water).

Yeah, give the utility company a call, they can set up payment plans where they take your balance and divide it by 12 and apply that amount to your bill every month for the next year until its paid off. BTDT!!

maybe time to get rid of the TV and get a pay as you go mobile phone.


Ironic my rent is much higher (HCOL area sadly) but I'd never pay that for a mobile phone each month.

CC's are last, who cares if you are homeless if the CC bill is late


*added* sorry I just saw you don't want to hear about the TV or phone, but you are asking what to pay first. I guess it's hard cause it's 2 big bills you shouldn't have if you are struggling with the rent, KWIM? I mean that in the nice non judgmental sense.

I would pay the $400 toward rent and let the landlord know when you will pay the rest. Then call the other late bills and give them a heads up when u will pay.

Re: Most my bills are late..what do I pay?

Pay rent first. Go down to the office and explain that you have $400 now and will have rest on the 24th.
Is this a monthly thing being way behind or just this month?
If it is just a crappy month and that is why you are so behind then maybe you could use the amex that is not late yet to cover the remaining rent and utilities.
