This payperiod is a longer one than normal. It is also made more challenging by the fact that they way the paydays land, it is the better part of three workweeks on this one paycheque.
This means that out of the current Grocery Budget, I must feed myself for three weeks. So my frugal ways will come in handy for this upcoming stretch.
The nice thing about this particular pay period and how it lands is that with all of those workdays on one paycheque, I actually started this pay period above Budgetary Minimum. (I honestly can’t remember the last time that has hasn’t happened).
So, while it is a longer stretch, there is a payoff at the end of it. If I can keep being frugal, I may just possibly be able to put all of my budgetary minimum into my Mid-Term Savings this payday too.
So, while I will eat, I won’t go crazy. After all I have a number of extra days to feed myself for.
As always: keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
