When the checking account is above $2k (subtracting expenses using the forecast chart in Quicken), we transfer the extra into a tax free money market account.

Do you have a slop factor in this process?

For example, maybe when the surplus in this account goes over $2K you bring it down to $1500?

That would convert frequent tiny transfers into less-frequent but larger transfers, which could offer a number of advantages depending on circumstances.
