Well, I would say that the obvious answer is the first sit down and write out a budget. I have a good feeling for how much to expect each month for mortgage, electricity, telephone, cable, Internet access, ect. These are recurring. I also set aside something for vacation, some to simply save, and some for my DRiPs. Doing this allows you to confidently send money each month to the companies you have selected.

How many DRiPs should you own? Well, my spin on that can be found here: http://www.fool.com/dripport/2000/dripport000530.htm and here: http://www.fool.com/dripport/2000/dripport000606.htm.
