It's only August, but I have rough budget plans until the end of the year. I know what each paycheck will be as long as it's the normal 40 hours. So I put all my bills due for that pay period in a spreadsheet with a running balance of how much money I have left. With some bills due at the same time as rent, I pay those early since rent will take most of my money. For bills that fluctuate, like electric bill, I guess high. I even started budgeting money for my boyfriend's gas and phone since he makes less than me and could use some help. It works pretty well for me, but I wish I didn't have to live paycheck to paycheck.
