Up until now, I had a monthly salary paid the last day of each month and it was pretty easy to automate almost all payments.
Social Security Payment: End of every month
Consultancy Income: Don't know when yet. I must claim expenses and then, bill the company.
Rent Income: Between the 1st and 3rd of each month if the tenant pays on time
Also a friend of mine is paying me back for a trip I had to arrange for her with my credit card. She called me to ask if it would be OK for her to pay on Monday and I agreed since it is not a significant amount. The credit card company divided the whole cost of the trip into five installments so, I had told her to pay in installments too.
I actually do not like it when the credit card company has these promotions where they divide the payments without asking me first.
So, I thought, I would have enough money for the early bills this month, but I think I miscalculated a little bit therefore, I must deposit some cash to my account tomorrow.
I think I must keep extra cash in my account. I really do not like to do that though. I rather like to see my money in my savings account earning interest.
I must get used to paying more attention to my account balances and automated payments from now on.
