Im due my first pay packet this Friday and I must resist blowing it all on fine wines.
Aye. Its good, you're never too far away from getting ££
Terrible for trying to save though.
It's good in a way cos there's no way I could go a whole month, but yeah, it makes saving very difficult. It's probably better to pay every other cheque into a savings account or something.
Manage to save quite a bit just buy setting a standing order to transfer money straight to a different account as soon as I'm paid.
unlike the others here, and it may be because i'm a boring fucker, but i find it easier to save, cause i can get a vague idea of a weekly budget straight off. whereas the people i know who get paid monthly are generally out of cash after 2 1/2 weeks of the month and end up doing nothing for the next two weeks not referring to anyone in particular coughchrisbrowncough
but I'm only working weekends cause of college so it's pretty hard to save anyway. Weekly over monthly though, clearly. My housemate gets paid monthly and usually has to get money from the folks after two weeks every month. That'd wreck my head
