My employer mentioned that we would have a third paycheck in December so they could close out their year. But it didn’t click in my head. When I looked online today and saw a balance that was way higher than on Friday, I about had a heart attack. Clicking further to look at the transactions, then it sunk in that I was treated with three (not two) paychecks in December. Normally, it’s just two a month.
So, after recording that paycheck, my net worth looks a little better for the end of December. It sits at -$38,691.
Now, since I essentially received a paycheck early, that means that I will only have one paycheck in January. That sort of stinks because January income will really look bad and December will be inflated. I’ll have to remember to note that when I post the income and expense report.
With that paycheck, our income is a little over $48,000 for 2006. I am very pleased with that amount.
Now since I have some money early, I’m going to try to send more money towards debt earlier this month 😉
