I get paid once a month, and work on all commission. I was so excited (and financially anxiously awaiting) today's paycheck because I had a great month last month. I checked my bank account and though "Oh there must be a mistake" when I saw the amount that was deposited. Nope. After taxes, social security, medicare, state tax, health/dental/disability (I pay for our whole family) and 401k my paycheck was less than HALF my gross pay. So depressing. So I have basically just enough to cover our bills...am I the only one who gets depressed seeing all the taxes,etc...on payday?
