  • I doubt my way will help you bUT...Jason gets paid monthly since he's a teacher. I get paid every other Friday. We are able to pay about 90% of our monthly bills out of his check alone, which is what we do...then we use my checks for living expenses. But to answer your question, when we sit down to budget each month we just put the dates and amounts I'll be getting paid and the dates and amounts of the bills and assign them accordingly. Sometimes it takes a bit of juggling to make it all work out right.

  • We do just want Janine does. I get paid the last day of the month and DH gets paid every other week.

    We use the last check of one month and the first check of the next month for budgeting Dh's money, that way we aren't really waiting past the second week of the month. For example we are using Dh's Nov 27 and Dec 11 checks for our December budget.
