Why is my paycheck already gone?

Especially when you consider that I don't get paid until tomorrow? This really stinks, it truly does. I definitely need to make more money because my "me" money is gone way before payday. I realize that this week had a holiday in it, but I didn't do anything or go anywhere. All of the excess money was from the week before last.

My finances are a sorry state of affairs.

Extra money because of the tax cut

I get a few extra dollars in my check every payday because of the Obama tax cut. I put half of it in my savings account and the other half is absorbed into my budget. I like getting the extra money but over the weekend I was talking to a friend and we figured that our tax refund next year will probably be smaller. They're taking less taxes so there's not as much money to get a refund on. I already get a small refund so next years will be even smaller.

I guess I should just be thankful that I don't owe.
