 How many of you are doing this right now? I know I am. But it's the way it's always been so I'm used to it. DH and I have separate accounts and like it that way but sometimes money gets a little tight.

No...thankfully, we have not done so in about 15 years...the first 4 years of our marriage were financially scary though.

We are at the moment, but that should change in about 3 months.

Yes and no.

dhs paycheck is gone about 10 minutes after its deposited.   im comfortable with the debt we do have (cars, 0% stuff).  But I don't feel like we are struggling....just ....well....spending (or saving) every last cent.

We are doing ok now. There have been times when we have been paycheck to paycheck in the past. We've made a lot of changes to get to where we are comfortable now. In another 2 years, we will be in an even better spot.

No. We've tried to have a little cushion for emergencies and have often needed it, mostly for car stuff.  Right now as the kids are leaving home things have eased considerably.  So grateful.

Normally we live like we are in an effort to save like crazy, but this year it seems we might actually have to.

Right now we are living paycheck to paycheck but I started working back in Nov last year so hopefully we can start paying off some of this debt that we have.
