Pay Schedule Preferences

When I began teaching, I was paid once a month. That really worked well, as bills were once a month, and once those were paid, I knew I could eat on what was left! Later, my husband was still paid once a month and I took a job where I was paid twice a month. We still tried to live like we were paid once a month. I've never been paid weekly, and I don't think I would like it.

It's probably all in what you are used to, but I was curious. What is your preference in your pay schedule, and why?

For 25yrs I've had the 15th and 30th as paydays unless they were non-work days. I had my bill money and savings direct deposited. The money left in my check was for gas,groceries,hair,nails,etc. I didn't have a debit card so on the chance I ran out of money,I was able to bum some $$ from DH who has always been paid weekly.
Right now I have to figure out a new system. I just retired and SS and pension come in the same week. I got a debit card a few months ago so tried taking funds out on the 15th and 30th and it hasn't worked out yet.
