  • Yes, I love it! Even if there is only $50 left in my bank accounts, as long as I've gotten all the bills paid, I feel so good!

  • LOVE it. My DH and I made this plan with goals to pay off certain bills and certain times, every time we get one paid off we get so excited.

  • We only get paid once a month, so as soon as that check hits the direct deposit, all the bills get paid. Then we don't have to worry about bills again for a whole month and it's awesome! It's not even a big deal to take care of it any more since that's the first thing that gets taken care of.
    Budgeting the rest of the money out and using cash envelopes for everything else has taken the worry out of overdrafting, too - And we can even put back for savings. I don't feel controlled by my money anymore, I feel in control of my money. It's a feeling of freedom!!!

  • Yes and tomorrow's payday! I like to pay the bills right away and then go grocery shopping directly afterward.
