I set up a bills context and put repeating actions in there (I have a project that's just for bills too, but that's not functional, only helps to organize them). Each action has a start date (usually about five days before a bill is due so I'm reminded about it a little ahead of time). Each action's due date is the due date of the bill. My bills are pretty regular so I don't have to modify the due dates very often, and since I have five days before the due date when a bill shows up in my action list I can usually adapt if a bill is due a day sooner than usual or something.
I don't have bill due dates in my calendar anymore. I just no longer need them. It works really well for me. I see the bills pop up regularly so I never miss them and once they're paid, I complete them and they disappear from my list until the next cycle.
