The three paycheck month equals winning
Do you get paid bi-weekly? If you do, then you must have noticed there is a month or two where you get three paychecks. Personally, August has been that favorite month for me as I have always received three paychecks. It is no news to you that my financial life was broken and non functional and so I had become a pay check to pay check person until I decided to take control of my finances.
Even when I was not budgeting, I knew I usually receive two pay checks most months and the same has continued even after I started budgeting. Therefore, my financial life has been set up in a way that I survive on two checks. So when another extra check pops in at the end of this month, I will take it as bonus money which I can hopefully invest most if not all into my debts.Then in September, I will get back to my two checks routine and hopefully a significantly educed debt.
Do you get an extra check on top of your regular number of checks in the month ?
