My hubby gets paid every other Wednesday. I know what bills are going to be due before his next payday, and I write those checks first. Then, I withdraw the grocery $$, the dining out $$ and the church contribution $$ for those 2 weeks. I have to get the cash OUT of the bank because knowing it's in there is BAD for me... we have (had) a serious debit card habit. Then, after next payday, we do the same thing. We try to forget about whatever may still be in the bank and it's nice to finally see a little something adding up in there. My hubby gets a "little" check and a "big" check, alternating, so I've budgeted according to the "little" check and tried to let the leftovers from the "big" check build our account up (and pay off some debt).
