  • Best budgeting app I’ve used!

    I love Goodbudget! It is seriously the best budget app I’ve ever used. Here’s what I love about it. First, it’s really simple to get started. They have a great Getting Started Video series that walks people through getting set up from start to finish. Second, everything is customizable. So I can create my own envelope categories and set the budget for each. I can create scheduled transactions that add in my income on the day I actually get paid, as well as scheduled payments for things that I pay automatically, like my car insurance. Third, I really appreciate that I have to manually add transactions myself. I think that keeps me much more aware of my spending because I have to add each one myself. My boyfriend uses Mint, and he has no idea how much he’s spent on things until he logs in and categorizes everything. Only then will he realize he’s over budget. That will not happen to you if you diligently add your expenses into Goodbudget. That also forces me to open up the app and actually look at my envelopes before spending, because I know if I don’t have enough cash to cover my purchase, my envelope will go negative, and I work hard to avoid that. Overall, the most important thing Goodbudget allows me to do is plan before I spend by setting money aside in an envelope. That way, I’m consciously making a plan for how I want to spend money that month. And I know that when an envelope is empty, I should stop spending.
  • Goodbudgeting for 6 years and still loving it! :)

    Goodbudget has been there for me through all my life and job changes as an adult! I started using Goodbudget when I graduated from college over 6 years ago, back when I was single and had two part-time jobs. Today, I am married and my partner and I each have a full-time job. We have the paid version and track everything in our budget, from birthday gifts to haircuts—we have 40 envelopes. Goodbudget has helped us save for a car, take multiple vacations abroad, and budget for emergencies (car break-ins, flat tires, parking tickets—the Emergencies envelope saved us!) and save for a future home renovation. Here are my favorite things about Goodbudget: 1) Great flexibility in tracking multiple paychecks – I used to have two incomes; one was once a month and one was every Friday, now I get paid twice a month and my husband gets paid every other Friday. We schedule our paychecks to post on the days we actually receive them and fill our envelopes at the beginning of the month using our cushion. Works great. 2) The envelope faces are cute and kind of sassy. Wish I could use the shocked one as an emoji! 3) I just got access to the new debt features and now we can start tracking our mortgage paydown—it’s great that it even calculates the interest for me! There’s a report that shows me my projected payoff date based on my monthly payments. 4) We have monthly meetings to go over our spending and saving goals, and it's really easy to pull up our Goodbudget reports to see our data, organized in a way that makes sense to us. Thank you, Goodbudget!
  • Thanks for helping me spend and save in line with my values!

    I’ve been using Goodbudget for several years now, and it’s been such a great tool to help me spend and save my money on what I really want to. I’ve been able to notice trends in unnecessary spending and cut back to save and spend on what’s important. And now being able to look back and see that my spending and saving habits are now more in line with my values feels really good! My favorite thing about Goodbudget is that it encourages me to plan ahead. While other apps can connect to my bank account and give me information about my spending after the fact, with Goodbudget I get to come up with a plan ahead of time that reflects my intentions, and then it makes it easy to see how closely I’m sticking to my plan in the moment that I’m deciding to spend. A couple features I want to highlight are scheduled transactions and reports. With scheduled transactions, Goodbudget takes care of my regular payments and fills so I don’t have to. It saves me time, and seeing upcoming transactions can help me plan ahead. The reports help me better visualize spending and saving trends when just looking at the numbers doesn’t always make sense. By the way, I think the plus subscription is totally worth it to have unlimited accounts and envelopes, because I like being able to categorize everything in a pretty detailed way.

    Your app is not straight forward but I like how thorough it is but make it more direct and user friendly... also have a system to convert to a excel/apple budget

    I’ve always loved budgeting and I’m 21 and was taught by my parents how to budget with literal envelops and this gives me the same feel as when I learned and helps me handle my money. I have recommended it to so many people and have helped my friends set it up too.
  • Exactly what I needed

    By Ceobackpacker
    I just needed to have a system that would keep track of my budgeted amounts in my main categories. I actually didn’t want something that synced with my online banking because it gets so confusing when your moving money from one account to the other or if you are buying something for someone else and getting paid back. I just wanted to see how much I was paying in groceries and saving for Christmas etc. It is super simple and that’s what I love about it.
  • Honestly saved me from losing my car

    I have been using Good Budget for over 4 years. I first downloaded it and started using it a tiny bit before that, when it was still called EEBA (Easy Envelope Budget Assistant), but I didn’t fully commit to using it until after I went through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University with my church. Dave Ramsey is all about CASH CASH CASH for everything, but I can’t keep track of things like that. With Good Budget though, I was able to start following Dave’s concepts of assigning every dollar a job, pre-planning where you spend things, and not overspending. Mathematically speaking, I couldn’t pay rent, eat, and make my car payments all at the same time, but somehow through careful planning, following the budget, and putting God first in all of it, I paid off my car 4 months early. As an app, it works really well. I love the convenience of being able to input transactions as I go. It interfaces with the website, and I really like how it all runs. A lot of people tell me they couldn’t use it because it’s all manual. GB doesn’t download your transactions for you. There’s no interfacing with your bank, they don’t check your credit score, they don’t offer you pre-approved credit offers, or any of that. It’s entirely dependent on you doing it yourself. I like this because it forces be to stay very actively involved with my money. There’s a few things I don’t like about it. The app interfaces with GPS so it knows when you’re at the same store it’ll pull up that store again when you go to input a new transaction. If that store has multiple locations, it doesn’t pull up easily. I also don’t like that there’s no way to store actual receipts. Photos or halftone scans or some such. The user interface could use an update, it hasn’t changed much in the last 4 years.
  • I recommend this to everyone!

    It’s a modern cash envelope budgeting system. My husband and I have been using it a couple years consistently and love it!

    Has made a huge difference for us in knowing how much money we ACTUALLY have that isn’t already going to payments, taxes, savings etc. So much better than being kept in the dark. I spend about an hour once a month importing balances from card/account in order to know how much we have for the next month. Just paid for our car in cash from having saved up and survived 6 months on only one income because we had savings in place and knew our finances. DO IT!!
