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?? =)

Salsabride -- LMAO... I'm just slightly OCD.... you should see the spreadsheets I have for wedding planning.  When we were first starting the planning, and intending to have a "regular" wedding/reception here, I gathered all the information from about a dozen venues, then created a spreadsheet with every possible expense (whether it was included in that venue's package, or if I'd need to contract it elsewhere), down to linens, chairs, flatware, bartenders... everything.


Then I totalled everything up based on 50 guests, 75 guests and 100 guests, so I could compare the venues and estimate the total costs (included service fees and applicable taxes).  It was amazing that many venues that seemed pretty affordable in fact ended up being pricier because they didn't include as many services, or had higher staff fees, etc...

neebs!  i sort of have the same thing for our costs - i have a column for 91 guests (what we're hoping to have) and another for 100 so i can see the difference in costs.


my friends make fun of my color coded spreadsheets but i don't care - i'm organized.

Yup, I'm an organization freak!!!  I had two binders with tabbed separators, for pics of gowns, hair, veils, flowers, colors, etc... then another with all the printouts/info from all the venues, menus, etc... and then an accordion organizer for receipts, contracts, etc.... (I still use that)

Oh, organization is calming.  LOL... Sounds strange, but when you're a bit OCD, disorganization is just frustrating... Organization makes it all better.  lol


 


(Really, I'm not THAT bad, just about the wedding plans, and work).
