Are you using the Foundation Template or the Envelope Budget Template? It sounds like the Envelope Budget Template is what you would need. You can adjust the budget interval to either one week, two weeks, or one month depending on how often you get paid.
I use the Foundation Template. Something that I have done recently is make a sheet where I put in all of my recurring bills for the month to figure how much discretionary money I have available. Its easier than keeping up with several different categories for me, which is what I used to do. Something like this might work for you as well.
@ctackett6407. The Projected Balances sheet is helpful at projecting balances after inputting monthly expenses. It also allows for various period intervals (daily, weekly, or monthly). Its a nifty tool to use in addition to either the Foundation and/or Envelope budget as @damon mentioned.
@heather I have but I wasn’t a huge fan of the way it worked. I tried out Simplifi by Quicken and they had something similar to the Spending Money Sheet so I just copied their method. I think it works better for me when I can put in all of my recurring expenses by bill, not category. And when the bill is cleared I input how much the bill actually was and it will adjust my remaining money left to spend. I could show and tell the sheet. I’m not a spreadsheet guru so it could definitely be improved.
