Heads up, folks? Remember that paycheck you got on Friday? Make sure to spend it carefully, because the next paycheck isn’t coming until Tuesday, 1 February 2011. That is 18 days between paychecks. Not the longest stretch possible but still long.
From the comments and emails I get, it seems that these long pay periods surprise a lot of people. Don’t be surprised – know when you get paid so you can plan.
