My hubby now has the opportunity to earn overtime at his new job. This is a first for us. I'm a salaried employee, so I take home the same paycheck each week, with no variation. In my hubby's old jobs, he never had an opportunity to work 40 hours, forget about going over that!
Well, he got paid on Friday and I was happy to see that he put in 8 hours of overtime! This really adds up. We got some extra cash to put towards our debt, which was unexpected and happily accepted :)
I'm really liking the idea of variable paychecks.
If I keep budgeting on the low side and he keeps putting in a little OT here and there, we'll be able to throw even more at our debt than we planned! This monkey is getting off my back whether he likes it or not.
