Our new (and improved!) checklist for each payday, the new items are in bold. Hopefully they will help us learn to live leaner:
- Put all bonus monies into savings immediately.
- Put half of my paycheck into savings immediately.
- Pay off Visa
- Pay all bills due in the next 2 weeks
- Run budget numbers
- Determine cash budget - we run on a cash budget for Grocery, Eating Out, Personal (toiletries), Gift, Gas, Clothing, and Entertainment
