save up enough money to get one month ahead on your bills (hard i know. i can't even do it. just an idea). then when you're one month ahead, you can make those payments on the 4th (early for the next month) and 18th (again, early for the next month). just a thought my friend. good luck and happy 4th.

Perhaps you could "juggle" your budget to have money left from the previous paycheck to last until the next. Our company went from weekly to monthly so they gave us 2 months to get things adjusted to be able to go a month with no pay!..

You don't get paid every two weeks. You get paid bi-monthly - 24 paychecks a year. I get paid every two weeks - 26 paychecks a year. As for late checks, call your state labor board to find out how late an employer is allowed to be. I think it's 3 days. Direct Deposit helps.

You can make payment arrangements on your bills. Some places (like cell phone company) will change your bill cycle date for you so that the bill due date coincides with your pay schedule.

Well you should schedule your bills so that they can be paid on a day you know you'll have the money. You can call the company and ask them to change your billing date. Also, lots of bills give you about a month to pay them, so don't wait until the last minute. Finally, as a life point, try not to live paycheck to... More

I understand ya. I work about 50 hours I suppose, but don't get paid for it.
Answered By: Hail Naw! - 7/4/2009
You can have the "due dates" for your bills changed to meet the days that you get paid. Everyone else is faced with the same thing, and it doesn't bother any of us.

Have your employer electronically deposit your check to your bank.

It certainly violates scripture, which says that the working man is to be paid at the going down of the sun, but it is a contract that you entered into with the employer. So don't come whining to us about it.

Hi, You need to either get a second job, or learn to budget your money better. Are you living beyond your means? Most people that have money problems bring it on themselves, and no matter how much they have they never can get it right.
