Distribute income more evenly?
Is there a way to distribute income as earned and not as received? Twice per year I receive an "extra" paycheck because of how my pay periods fall on the calendar. This makes those months outliers on my Net Income report. The same thing happens when I get my tax return. It really skews the charts. Aside from hiding these transactions completely, can I account for them in a more accurate way?
I set aside money in my budget for big periodic expenses (like car insurance) but do not know how to do the same for income.
Part of the reason I use Mint is to encourage myself to save. When I see a huge green bar three months of every twelve, I find it hard to talk myself down from unnecessary purchases.
