Money comes (slowly), Money goes (quickly)

Often time we wait for our paycheck every mid and end of the month. But most of the time it doesn't stay with us that long. Do you still set aside money for the "rainy days" or do you dig deep into your savings in order to pay for the monthly expenses?

We often feel like it somes in a lot slower than it goes out. We have manged to set up a little bit of a rainy day fund thanks to our tax return, but it does seem like the expenses continue to rise each month.

Hello Foxygirl, This is a very nice question. Actually I have not yet earn enough money to transfer on my account. But I figure out already that soon I will have enough money to transfer on my account, it will not last long. As I have a lot of monthly payments to pay and to cover my sisters tuition. I always plan to save some, I do put some on my bank account, but after a few days found myself withdrawing some of it. Then the process will repeat and repeat until what remains is the minimum balance. Lol But I am hoping to earn more money in online money making site so that I could be able to save some.

I am blessed because my husband has his retirement check and that takes care of the monthly expenses. I have often told him that we are blessed because if we lost our jobs we still would have the money to pay our monthly expenses. He and I have a job and that takes care of the other things that we need or want to do. We also are able to help our son sometimes when he needs financial help. People who don't have retirement coming in with the expenses of living it is hard to squirrel away for a rainy day.
