My girlfriend has a complete lack of interest in saving money. How can I get her from living pay to pay?

She basically spends her entire check as soon as it comes in and is always has to play the game where she cashes can't date checks for bills until he check is deposited. She is ok with it but for a long term thing I am not. I don't want to move in together because of this reason only. She will drain us. Aside from giving her an ultimatum or come on too strong (she will just get defensive), how do I say 'look - SAVE SOME CASH!'
