Use the Options in the Scheduled Transaction editor to tell GnuCash to  
remind you about an upcoming payment; if you then right click on the  
reminder, you can choose to execute the transaction or skip it.

Paychecks are a problem: mine varies by a cent or two from check to check,  
so I just have a regular scheduled transaction and adjust it when I get  
the paper paystub.
