Today is a pay day. and as well as every 15th of the month. I normally do not take any over time during this day and go ahead and go to the bank and withdraw some cash and go shopping to the nearest mall within my area. after that I am going to eat in a restaurant that I haven't been able to visit yet and ask the waiter what is their specialty and order one to try and taste their specialty. Then If i still have time then I will go and watch a movie in theaters or just rent a DVD to watch it at home while eating half a gallon of ice cream or home prepared pop corn. That is how I enjoy life while working and enjoying my salary. How about you guys, how do you spend time during pay days? how do you enjoy your salary?

the 30th day payday is not a good day since it's where most of the bills are getting paid from. Water, electricity, tuition fees.. you name it it falls on the 30th. You don't even realize that most of your earnings are already gone as soon as you withdraw the money from the ATM machine.

hello aaronfyzeon! well, about payday, my payday dates are 7 and 22. about your question on how to spend and enjoy my salary. im not withdrawing it all. i only withdraw the amount of money that will be my allowance for the next 2 weeks, allowance for my mom, and a minimal bucks for a dinner date with my bf. the excess of it will be saved for my future use. it is good to spend money and enjoy it, but it is much better to save all of it for future sake. :)

When payday is on one of the last days of the month, I have to pay the bills that are due on the first part of the next month since I am only paid every other Friday. Although the budget is tight, I do try to go out to eat once every payday. Looking for coupons on the internet help a lot. My other weakness include shopping on E-Bay and thrift stores, flea markets, garage sales and antique stores.
