Cash shortfall after Eid

Yesterdays Jordan Times wrote that many Jordanians now are concerned about how to make the money last the coming month.
The Eid Al Fitr holiday is now over and many people have spent large sums to fulfil their Eid commitments.
This seems to be buying new clothes and sweets for their children and “eidiyya” (cash gifts) to children and female relatives. The government disbursed the salaries for September ahead of the Eid to help people be able to buy what they were supposed to buy.
Now they have to wait forty days for the next salary!
I guess it’s much the same problem as we have in January.....?!
