I’ve recently picked up a new job, and for some unknown reason they pay me weekly. I’m struggling to get my head around how to manage this money and budget it. The main difficulty is that it’s not the same amount every week/month. I’ve come up with the following options:
Put it in a pot until the end of the month to simulate a payday.
Pros: Just like being a normal person
Cons: Very cluttered summary
Have it paid into a spare account and pay myself a wage each month
Pros: Just like being a normal person, with no clutter in the summary
Cons: Not paid the same amount weekly, so will need to be done manually. The lover of automated finance in me hates this idea
Suck it up and manage my money weekly
Pros: I don’t need to worry about the above
Cons: Effort and difficulty with different income per week
Any ideas, thoughts or advice?
