We get paid on the 1st and the 15th. For each pay period, I pay all bills that are due within that time frame (for example, bills paid on the 1st are due between the 1st and the 14th, etc.). I buy groceries once on the 1st and once on the 15th, with usually just one small trip in between for fresh bread, fruit, and veggies (normally only about $10). I take out what we need for gas, what DH needs for haircuts (he has one each pp because he is military & it's mandatory) and put it in an envelope. Everything else goes to pay extra on credit card debt.
