Split Your Check Each Paycheck

This Sparked Me!

If you get paid biweekly this is a good trick. I do it for my car payments as well as my rent!

Split the rent/mortgage in two and put away that amount out of your first check. I suggest you open a new checking account. This account should have no debit card or check book linked to it. Then split half of your rent money to go into this new account. You dont have to scramble to pay rent.

    Great idea. I get paid biweekly and I do have 2 accounts. It works out well.

    Sounds like a great idea. I will try it.
