This is my paycheck that I don't pay my mortgage out of, that will come out of the one two weeks from now. I know I have a big property tax bill coming, I will probably need almost $600 to send in so that there is enough there next month to pay my semi-annual taxes. And I have also deducted my auto-drafts that will fall between now and next payday, along with a transfer to my savings account. So, I am trying to decide what to do with the rest of the money. I think I am going to try leaving it in my checking account this time and see just how little of it I can spend over the next 2 weeks. If all goes well, I will be able to add whatever is left next payday into my savings and start fresh with the new paycheck.
How do you all handle payday? I usually pay myself first and last.
