We have had some changes in our salary payment schedule. I am now receiving my salary every two weeks and Mr. Sam is now receiving his salary twice a month (15th and last day of the month).

I am very much in the habit of paying our bills on the 1st and the 16th of each month and the change in our salary payment schedule has thrown my system out of whack. I find myself either paying our bills early (today is the 9th and I just paid our bills that I normally pay on the 16th) or I hold my salary in my checking account for a week or so until the 16th or the 1st. But holding my salary in my checking account undermines our allowance system because for a week or more I have all kinds of extra money in my checking account.
