Dealing with Different Pay Cycles

ONE HOUR: Do you struggle with budgeting because of your pay cycle? Do you need to stretch a big paycheck over several months? How do you budget monthly if you are paid weekly or bi-weekly? What if you get paid once at the end of the month? We'll look at how to handle all of these situations. By following YNAB's four rules and implementing a simple three step process, you'll be able to adapt to any of these pay cycles.

Meet Your Teachers

Each of YNAB's Teachers is a YNAB success story. Their experience makes them uniquely qualified to show you how to change your life with YNAB.


Erin is a former high school teacher whose credit card debt spiraled out of control because she was only tracking some of her spending. She found YNAB in 2006, learned to track all her spending, and eliminated the debt!

Lee was an instructor in the Navy who used to use a spreadsheet to manage his money, but it didn’t handle overspending well. With YNAB, he learned to roll with the punches and he’s never looked back.

Malisa is a high school math teacher who wanted her money to be spent on wants and not just needs. YNAB helped her line up her spending with her values, and now she loves helping others do the same.

Ronna is a Graduate student in NYC who realized the paper envelope method of budgeting was difficult with her urban on-the-go lifestyle. She discovered YNAB while searching for a modern approach, and became an instant devotee!

Sherri was a technology integration specialist in New Hampshire, helping students and teachers to become 21st century learners. YNAB helped her finally get a handle on the family finances and now she’s excited to teach people how to get a handle on theirs.
