It might not be the way you want to do it, but, personally, when I get 
the bills, I pay them and enter them against my expenses.

Actually, for most bills, I have an estimate set up as a scheduled 
transaction.  It puts a payment in at the start of the month dated for 
the end of the month with the estimated amount.  These future-dated 
transactions show up below a blue line.  Once I pay the bill, I fix the 
date and amounts, and enter the transaction.

I do this to help estimate cash flow for the month.

Hope this helps,
