Unless you have a need to spend more than the $24 + the $30 something in cash before you get paid, why do you need that money in your checking account?

Dude, some weeks, $65 bucks is all I have left pre-grocery shopping and that's for two weeks.

What do you need to buy this week that is making you so nervous?

Stay home, watch tv, read a book, talk to friends, do a puzzle, write a letter.

Why not see if you can get through the week without spending the cash? Give yourself a new goal.
