Two Different Paychecks

When the paychecks come at different times, Dave tells Josh to set a budget for THIS month, not the perfect month.

QUESTION: Josh asks how you budget when one spouse gets paid twice a month, and the other gets paid every two weeks. Dave says to not budget for the perfect month.

ANSWER: Don’t do a budget for a perfect month, do a budget for THIS month. Look at how many checks you get during this month, and gear your budget around that. If in December or June you get more than four paychecks, then make your budget to go along with that.
