For salaried employees, trying to make a budget for daily and weekly expenses might become a tedious affair. When the salary amount is broken down, it is easier to understand how much liquid money there is in hand for basic expenditure, over a short period of time. For this purpose, it is a smart decision to find the equivalent of your salary in terms of hourly wages. You can do so by first dividing your salary monthly, then weekly, and then finally splitting into the number of hours you work per day. You could also use a financial calculator to make this job simpler for you.
