Getting Started with Budgeter

I. Create A Plan

1. Click My Plans... button, then choose New...

2. Name your plan, i.e. My Current Account

3. Select Continuous

4. Click Create


II. Add Opening Balance

Opening Balance is an amount you have now. Let's suppose it is 500, let's add it with the default, today's date:

1.   <today>   500   OB, then


III. Add Income

Let's assume you earn 3000 every month:

1. Click , then choose Add Regular...

2.   <today>   <end date>   Monthly   3000   pay, then


IV. Add Regular Expenditures

1. Click , then choose Add Regular...

2.   <today>   <end date>   Monthly   500   rent, then or Enter

3. Click , then choose Add Regular...

4.   <today>   <end date>   Weekly   100   groceries, then or Enter


V. Add Other Expenditures

1.   <date>   100   Mom's Birthday, then or Enter


The order in which you add entries does not make any difference, because after every modification Budgeter sorts all entries by date, then by being an income or expenditure, then by a comment.

At the bottom you can always see how much is left for spending (Available).
