I'd like to enable CloudWatch billing alerts for my account so I can more effectively track the amount of my AWS bill. How do I do that?

You can enable Amazon CloudWatch billing alerts for your account by following the instructions at Enable Monitoring of Your Estimated Charges.

Note: You must be signed in as the root user of an account before you can enable billing alerts for that account. For an explanation of the difference between root credentials and IAM credentials, see Root Account Credentials vs. IAM User Credentials.
