Christmas pay and Trends!

Hi,
I imagine some of us are being paid a bit earlier this month due to Christmas, the early arrival of salary will really mess up my Trends planning as it gets out of sync with the usual pay date. For those affected, how do you manage this?

Thanks

Adjust the date?

Don’t spend it until your payday?

I’ve done this on previous years - pretending I didn’t really get paid early. Yes, it’ll spike up the balance for the end of the current month, and targets will need adjustment, but it does work quite well.

I always get paid Xmas eve (or the closest working day) so as soon as I get paid I move it into another account out of the way until 31st my actual payday.

Yes I get paid on the 22nd, which will mean I get “paid early” on the 21st
