How can it be?

February 17th, 2008 at 05:53 am


February. The shortest month of the year. And we will receive as many, and in some cases MORE paychecks this month than any other.

Not sure how that happend...but most months I get two (bi-weekly) and the hub gets four(weekly).

But in this, the shortest month of the year...I will get THREE and the hub will get FIVE.(corrected)

and that, friends....adds up to almost $2k extra this month!! woo-hooo!!!

I will be using the extra to catch up, put $$ down on vacation, and put some into savings.

This is also the month we get our year end bonus...which should hopefully mean another $1200 or so to stick back!!

It feels good to be catching up a little. I just think it is odd that February is such a profitable month....

    Odd, but wonderful!! Glad you are getting ahead! My kids can certainly use the extra they've got coming too!

    That is great! It must have something to do with the fact there is 5 fridays this month! Still can't figure out how your husband gets 6 checks!

    I am with IMA/Julie.

    There are 5 Fridays in February due to the fact that it is a leap year. How your husband is getting 6 paychecks is beyond me.

    Unless one of the weeks he is getting 2 checks due to back-pay, a bonus, reimbursement of expenses, etc.

    oops...make that 5 paychecks...I goofed. (The extra $2k is correct.) I am still thrilled with the extra checks and subsequent padding to the budget!!
