    So if you got paid today then you might know that is month is 3 paycheck month.....

    What a great month...... So anyone planning on wasting some of that extra check on something fun?

    I'm thinking about some Avid Juicy's for my XC bike, and some new rotors / pads for my Rover.

    the DHX air is a Fox rear shock. I have a DHX coil on my 5-spot, but i'd love to loose a pound off my bike with the air version. After getting the tings i really need i wont be able to afford, but one can dream....

    It's an extra check if you budget getting 2 checks a month.
    I don't even know when I get paid????

    If you budget monthly, wouldn't you just take your salary and divide it by 12? :think:

    This perplexes me.

    True if you're salary, but it's different if you're hourly.

    True.

    How do you budget if you're hourly? Do you just assume a certain number of minimum hours? And anything over that is gravy?

    Its the way the calender works.

    I get paid on thursday. So get a calender, and mark thurs of this week, now start skipping every other thursday marking that as a payday and see the pattern? I think there are 2 - 3 pay months a year. Usually its all spent already. I think the check in the middle of the month is my real free one... this one will go to my house pmt....

    I was salary, but they just made my group hourly employees. oon the one hand we can now get overtime... on the other hand we can't take off from work early.

    I used to work an average of a 6 - 7 hour day (unless we're on a special project). Now I actually have to work 8 hours!!!! :mumble:

    I'm tellin ya... the MAN is keeping me down!

    LOL... I already have it. And yeah, it rocks... Mony is in there at midninght of payday, and checking account is free and overdraft and all that... it's pretty cool, but not as cool as an extra pay check.

    It's not EXTRA.

    I would think that a Supreme Commander would know that.

    More evidence to the contrary, Mr. Dick Tator.

    I've always budgeted for 2 paychecks a month because I was paid on the 1st and 15th at my last job which I was at for over 5 years. Since switching to my new job a year and half ago, my paychecks come every 2 weeks. I still do all my budgeting based on 2 checks a month so the two months each year (this month being one of them) I receive 3 checks so in effect, I do get an 'extra check'. This 'extra check' is going towards paying off a computer I bought a couple months ago and sending some cash to the Red Cross...my next 'extra check' month (about 6 months from now) will probably go towards a new frame to replace my old Bullit.

    bahh, my boss is the worst, he pays us basically "whenever it's convienent", in the beginning of the summer no one had gotten a check for over a month. He's finally writing us checks this weekend after 3 weeks of none, it gets pretty rediclous.

    Excellent suggestion. For everyone getting an *extra* check this month, donate it to the Salvation Army/Red Cross/etc. :thumb:

    Julie's aunt has requested we donate for her birthday. We will be giving to the Red Cross. Seems pretty selfless to me. :thumb:
