1- Take decisions together

Site down & discuss in advance how you will pay the expenses, who will pay them, and how you will split them in terms of shares.

2- Keep a written document of expenses

No matter who is in charge of paying the bills, you need to create a shared spreadsheet to document all expected expenses in the coming month, their due dates & who will pay them.

Check the expenses that had been paid during the month or add any unexpected expenses.
