I have multiple places that I manage our finances, our budget is in spreadsheet form, I have a different money managing program to manage all our accounts, I only need GoodBudget to replace the paper envelopes filled with real paper cash. I don’t want to load my budget, I don’t want to list my income, I just want envelopes.
I reload envelopes weekly and my monthly budget varies in start and end date. We also have months with higher budgeted amounts then other months, there’s no real consistency.
I tried this app for a week and I loved the ease of entering receipts and it deducting from the total. At the beginning of the next week, all my budgeted amounts reset to the weekly fill, they didn’t hold the extra from the week before. Also, I keep getting unallocated funds even though everything is balancing. I’m thinking this has to do with not wanting to use the income part?
Am I trying to fit a square peg in a round hole? Can I use the app just to show envelope totals on mine and my husband’s phone and just keep track without having to enter a bunch more info? Please tell me there’s hope for me!
