Paychecks Stabilized

November 23rd, 2014 at 03:50 pm

Finally. My husband's promotion was in September. The pay took a few weeks to catch up and thus had back pay. I finally know what each paycheck will look like. I can start making some plans on how to allocate the money. That makes this math geek happy!

We have $500 deposited to US Bank once a month. It was a requirement of their checking account bonus offer. We should meet the requirement soon and get $200. Once that money is firm, I will cancel the $500 deposit. I don't need money going into all sorts of accounts for no reason! (Although, I'm remembering that it might be nice to have a bank branch when we go to sell the house...I'll ponder that before I make changes.)

I've done some more Christmas tasks and decluttering this weekend. I've written about it over on

    Oh, I hate not knowing what the check is going to be. Glad it has stabilized for you.

    In my experience back-pay always causes higher deductions, particularly income tax. Only when I file income tax forms [on-line] do all the sums get realigned correctly.

    Just this month my paychecks have stabilized - at least until February when retirement will start being taken out. It is nice to know the regular amount!
