Anyone elses job pay them or s/o only once a month? I've been getting paid once a month for the last three years I cannot budget right to make it through the month. By the last week I feel like I'm waiting for my walfare check. I miss biweekly pay.

It's the same amount of money.  Put half in a savings account and pay yourself biweekly.

It will. I actually like once a month now. I know hear I stand after all bills. Would it help to do part time for a couple months until you get used to it? It is hard at first.

You could probably even have this done automatically through your bank.  Half gets deposited into the savings and then schedule an automatic transferfrom that to your checking account two weeks later. :-)

Hubby's pays once a month. It's different, but it's what we have to work with. We know to the penny how much our bills cost and make sure that amount is in the account at all times. If you want you could have two separate accounts. One for just bills and one for groceries, sundries and other stuff.
