What do you do with extra pay?

 So next month this Sept has 5 Fridays for most this means an extra paycheck in the month. This only happens twice in every year usually. What do you do with yours? Savings, pay off bills, shopping spree, give to charity, plan a trip, etc. For me it usually depends what time of year it is and what we have going on financially. Being so close to Christmas I'll most likely but the bulk of it there or catch up on school items I they haven't'got yet. However if I really had a my dream way with it I'd put  a nice chunk down a spring break vaca for next year.

Extra pay? Yay! I get to pay all my bills on time this month and have a reasonable grocery budget!

Yes I would love to put it away for a little vaca but I know that won't happen! It will definitly be going towards christmas if we are caught up on bills but a dream vaca sounds really nice :)

Usually extra pay comes from hubby working outrageous hours so some of it goes to spending the day as a family doing something special and the rest goes to savings.

I get paid twice a month regardless of how many weeks are in it.  There's no extra pay for me.
