Hello everyone, What will the be first few things you will do when you receive your paycheck for that month? For me, I will save some of it, use some of it more investment and most part of it to pay for my bills. The remaining will be used for entertainment purpose.

Well the first thing I have to do with the paycheck is work out how much of it I have to put aside for all the bills for the month. Then I have to work out the weekly expenses such as gas, electric food etc. Then whatever is left gets split between savings and hubby and I.

Nothing... mine is paid directly into the bank and then directly out to the mortgage, insurance, council tax, fuel companies etc. Whats left is the food budget for the month.

Certainly have but y'know, there are people in a lot worse position. You just do the best with what you have... I dont think the myLot earnings are going to have any life-changing effect Its just something to do for relaxation when I'm not at work.

paycheck! "eyes wide open" i most probably would save most of it, use the rest to pay for bills like many others. However in every 2 to 3 months, i would take out extra $$ for a nice treat to myself =)
