We have personal checking/savings accounts and one joint checking account we call the “house account”. Each pay period we deposit $ into the house account to cover the mortgage, HOA fees, cable, gas, power, etc. and an additional $300 month on top of what the bills generally come to. That cushion is reserved for home related needs: calling a plumber, things like that.
Out of the leftover $, about 1/3 goes into my savings account and 2/3 into checking. At the end of the month I “sweep” whatever’s left over in checking into my savings account.
Our credit cards are separate.
