automation vs regular updates

September 8th, 2019 at 07:39 pm

I have been doing temp work for the last few years most time between jobs has been minimal.
I just started my new placement that is set to be a year long. I have created a new excel spreadsheet showing my payments and savings.

While tempting to automate the whole process, i am still set in a mind frame that temp contracts can end less then what they are set up as. it seems easier to just do payments instead of stopping a bunch of auto payments.
So i go in and enter transfers/ bills/ contributions every couple of weeks instead of auto pilot.
I set up split direct deposit but when first check was deposited it was only into the main account.
It was a bit frustrating but it looks like it is a big hassle to change perhaps it takes a couple of weeks and they just used the main account first because that is the one i always used before. i think sometimes when you start another assignment they just reactivate past settings and do not really look at on-boarding changes. I will wait to see if next one is correct before playing phone tag with someone.

    There are only a couple of things that we do automatic payments on and it is because we are required to. I dread the aspect of having to go in and change or stop them when the time comes.
