Weekly Spending Limit
The weekly spending limit is kind of like an adult allowance and it can be a source of comfort for those with ADHD.
One week at a time
Managing your money on a Weekly basis is easier to handle than taking a whole month at once. It requires less planning and mentally keeping track of “where you are at” with your personal finances. Plus you get to start fresh every seven days.
User friendly interface
Our interface is more fun than technical. You can also assign emojis to your income and expenses to make budgeting fun.
