A real budget ...

... for you and yours

A budget is defined as an estimate of income and expenses for a specified future period

For a personal or household budget, expenses include paying with cash, making bill and credit card payments, saving up to buy something, plus both short- and long-term savings.

A Real Budget is the standard budgeting tool that can work for everyone

A budget with a twice monthly framework improves visibility and simplifies planning

Each budget column shows the income due on or before the column date and expenses due on or after the column date. The "New unallocated balance" row at the bottom is your bottom line. Red numbers on this line indicate that you plan to spend more than you will have available.
