My partner has inconsistent income because he is in a sales/production oriented role. He actually doesn't get a salary but only makes money through production numbers. He has the potential to make a lot, but it's just inconsistent. Some months he might bring in $2k and other months he could bring in $50k.
Im having a hard time figuring out how to do our expenses. i make a nice, consistent salary and could afford to pay for most of our expenses (rent, utilities, food etc) by myself if needed (albeit, without much room for fun stuff). right now we're waiting for a big check to come in so he can pay me back for some of the past months of rent he missed.
Anyway, curious if others have suggestions for managing finances in these situations. I feel like a normal "we each put X into a joint bank account at the end of the month" just isn't going to work. Thanks!
