Fighting the Urge

Tomorrow is payday and we've just received our payslips for the month. So I'm fighting down the urge to reconcile my bank account and set up my cheque book for next month (I use the cheque register pages at the front as a cash book). Roll on lunchtime, when I can do both on my own time. I love payday! That's when I work out where all the money goes.

On the plus side, I've made my first contribution to the pension scheme* so now know what my take home pay will be going forwards. I contribute 4.5%; the company pays 6%.

* For my American readers, it's a defined contribution scheme similar to a 401k, paid out of gross salary.
