The Payday Countdown...


not to startle anyone but for those of you early 2009 brides who are either making payments or squirreling away the cash to pay everyone off at once, here's a rough estimate - give or take a couple weeks/pay cycles:


January 2009 = 12-14 weeks -> 6-7 pay periods (if you get paid every 2 weeks)


Feb 2009 = 16-20 weeks -> 8-10 pay periods


March 2009 = 20-24 weeks -> 10-12 pay periods


 


factor in the Holidays and get ready to start budgeting even more.. but if youre cashed up or charging, the i guess ya dont have to worry huh?? =)

thanks for the info maria!  we plan on doing our taxes early in hopes that if we do get a refund we can get it before the wedding and hopefully my company will still give us our annual bonus in february.  if not, then we're screwed! hehe...

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who does this!!


A couple months ago I printed out 3 blank calendars, and then marked down which were my paydays, which were FH's, dates of major bills due, dates of major wedding expenses due (ie picking up my dress, picking up wedding bands, etc....) and then estimated how much I could sqirrel away each month for the honeymoon fun money fund!  It's actually worked really well cus I have a VISUAL representation of the wedding cashflow.

I think we may have to boycott X-mas this year!  Well, maybe not boycott, but we definitely won't be spending as much as we usually do...not even close!

Thanks for the info...I'm glad I am not the only one counting paychecks... I'm even looking into when I should send out the checks, just to make it before the holidays. =o/
