How to use Budgeted

Budgeted is an app created specifically for lightening-fast data entry and snapshot views of your personal spending budget. It is totally customizable and provides you with real-time data of the status of your disposable income.

Make a Plan

Before you being using Budgeted, you need to know how much money you wish to spend per week on discretionary items as well as your general spending categories.

Example: I have $700 dollars to spend per week. I decide to divide it into four categories: Entertainment ($100), Dining ($300), Groceries ($200), Apparel ($100).

Please note—you may pick as many or as few categories as you like.

Create Your Categories

When you open the app, you will be presented with a blank screen. For each the categories that you want to track, follow these steps:

  1. Tap the “Edit” button in the upper left-hand corner of the screen to enter editing mode.
  2. Tap the “+” button in the upper right-hand corner to add a new category.
  3. Type a name for the category.
  4. Tap the “Done” button to add the category.
  5. Select the row for the category.
  6. Type the amount you want to spend on a weekly basis.
  7. Tap the “Done” button to set the amount.

Spend Your Money

You will notice that Budgeted updates in real-time, constantly allowing you to see how much is left in each particular category. It’s important to to note that Budgeted is NOT a detailed record of spending. It is a snapshot of how much money you can safely spend in each of your discretionary categories. Updating is fast enough that you can enter an amount before your receipt prints at the register!

Example: I went out to dinner and my portion of the bill was $45.03 in total. To deduct from my dining budget I will complete the following three steps:

  1. Select the row for the “Dining” category.
  2. Type “45.03” as the amount to spend.
  3. Tap the “Done” button.
