3rd paycheck

My husband's paid bi-weekly so it's 3rd paycheck. This year we're getting our kids school clothes and supplies with the extra $$$. We'll save any extra for Christmas.

Extra Paychecks

I get paid normally every 2 weeks, so once in the spring and once in the fall, I get an extra payday, which I plan how to use ahead of time to pay off debts or save. This month, I have paid off one medical bill, put away more in savings, and made extra payments on the credit card.

Eat Regularly and Live indoors

We live paycheck to paycheck most of the time so we just pay bills, buy food, and provide shelter for our family
