get your "income"? Is it once a month - every week - every other?

Do you often find that you have more month than you have money?

Dh gets paid every other Friday.

I am supposed to get child support for Noah, but it is 950.00 behind, going to contempt court,... but DH is in the process of adopting him anyway, because spermy wants it that way so he doesn't have to pay (that's another story)

DH works as a honda tech, and he gets paid per job, at a flat rate right now for every job, BUT say :

1 job pays 1 hour and it takes him 3 hours, he gets paid for 1 hour

OR

1 job pays 6 hour and he takes 2 hours, he gets paid for 6 hours AND can take other jobs during that time. One week he had 100 hours on a check so yes sometimes we have more money than others, if that makes sence.

Both SO & I get paid every Thursday.

I have a VERY detailed budget that I keep in excel so I know exactly what I get paid (it calculates the taxes etc etc for me when I input my weekly hours) and I split up the bills, my insurance, my van payment & transportation for the teens for city busing through the month.
I never know how much my SO has at any given time in his account, and he doesn't know the same about mine. I give him a set amount mid-way through the month to deposit in his bank account (we took the mortgage amount, the condo fees and the VOIP total & split that in half). And I usually just pay stuff on bills without really thinking about it.
I make a lot more money than he does, so it's not really an issue as far as I'm concerned.
My ex is also behind in child support, almost $2000 right now. They have sent him a notice (he would have received it in the mail by Friday last week) that he needs to pay up or they are suspending his drivers license; it's of his own doing, so too bad for him.

DH gets paid every Friday and yes, there's always more month than money...

Right now we're trying to fit in summer clothes, home school curriculum and a futon for my oldest son. It's not working out too well

I get once a week disability checks while on mat leave right now, they come on Mondays. They are pathetically small. When I am working I get paid on Friday's.

There is always more month than income.

I don't get any help for Isaac (his dad is dead) or Aaron (dad in prison...great, huh). The other kids dad was paying CS for all of them, even Isaac and Aaron until he was laid off in January. Now I get nothing. It reduced our income by $800 a month.

My mom is trying to help me now, she gives me a lil something every other Wednesday when she gets paid.

It's a really good thing I have no house payment and the van is paid for, we'd be homeless and walking.

Do you often find that you have more month than you have money? Never

Dh gets paid every week. Thank goodness for direct deposit!
As long as he is working we are fine but when he is laid off and we're drawing unemployment then it's a huge adjustment.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

Usually we both get our income once a month, but SO is on worker's comp right now so he gets weekly checks.

Seth's dad is in prison so no CS there, last time I checked (about 2 yrs ago) he was around 15K behind, I know that will never be paid. In 13 yrs I have received a total of $351 from him, then he went back to prison..
I do get SS for Tarin b/c his dad passed away..

And b/c the WC is not anywhere close to SO's normal pay, here lately there has been way more month than money....

Urbanmomma - can't you get SS for Isaac since his dad has passed?

Do you often find that you have more month than you have money? lately yes way more month than money. it didn't help giving away all our food before we moved from VA to MI.

We both get paid fortnightly. Hubby on a Wednesday and me on a Thursday.

We're still trying to get ahead of our bills, as hubby's only been working perminent part-time for 3 weeks, before that he was working casual, but lost about half his hours in late January.
