  • All of our checks get deposited into a savings account and we pull out what we need for bills/spending for the month...the rest stays in there. I just pull out what I need for the holidays when it is that time. I don't spend that much though! Holy moley! I usually spend under $1000 (which includes the meals and extra driving) and we have a family that buys for everyone.
