May is a great month :)

May 8th, 2009 at 05:11 am

Well, I'm very happy to realize that my husband and I will receive three paychecks this month (paid bi-weekly). This gives us an entire extra paycheck to put toward some big expenses coming up. I will be able to get some body work done on my car. I had a minor accident with the garage door back in March when we were unloading a generator. I had let it go due to this seemingly minor accident costing $600.00 to have fixed. (note to self: learn auto painting skills so I can make $60.00+/hr). We will also have no problem paying $1,500.00 for the septic out of pocket.

Looking ahead...I see this wonderful phenomenom of three paydays in one month is going to happen once more in July, and possibly October. Bye-Bye Hospital Debt and T.V. Debt! We will also meet our goal of having 10k in savings. Good Lord willing and the creek doesn't rise of course.

    We are on a three paycheck month as well. It certainly does help - here it is going toward the real estate tax installment payment on our rental property.

    It definately is nice to have! I don't think I ever noticed them before we started analyzing our finances more closely.

    If you get paid 3 times in May (I do as well) you will ONLY get paid 3 times again in October, not in July. Bi-weekly paychecks result in 3 paymonths twice every year.

    Oh Yah! Woops I mis-counted, its 3 times in August (1st, 15th, and 29th) and then 3 times in October (2nd, 16th, and 30th). But it is happening this month also. That's 3 times. I guess I could still be mis-counting though.

    we get paid weekly so it doesn't really make any difference to us. and i usually calculate everything yearly anyway.
