Yeah, with direct deposit it's super easy to have a percentage of my check split off into my savings account. I never even see it until I have to make a big payment like property taxes or something.
I really don't check my bank balance in between paychecks. I have a decent idea in my head what's in there, and it's been awhile since I've genuinely had to worry about running out of money.
bonus! My son will. be done with Kindercare next month! That's $800 freakin' dollars a month back in our pockets. Kick ass. Considering we've been doing OK without this money, it will be directed into savings and bills. It's like getting a raise without actually getting one.
