By now I'm sure I've impressed on all of you how much I like being prepared, having a plan and avoiding the end-of-month crunch mode. This month, GJS's last paycheck lands on the 28th. So we won't have access to all the funds we need to pay for all our expenses for February until the last day. I always pay for everything and make sure every payment clears before the end of the month, so this is frustrating for me. I'll have to backdate all our transactions on mint.com to make sure they are credited towards February instead of March. I guess it is less of a conundrum and more of an annoyance but still, not my favorite way to end a month.
