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?

DH gets paid weekly. I like it, I have the mortgage getting paid weekly and money going into savings weekly as well. The amount of income each month doesn't vary too much so our budget for food, entertainment, etc doesn't usually change, and I track everything as we spend. The only thing I really have to be aware of is 3 months of the year I have an extra weekly mortgage payment and biweekly car payment, so I have to make sure I put extra money away for that during 5 pay cheque months.
