Why does Weekly budget with averages?

Weekly is different from most other budgeting apps. Many other tools track your income and expenses month over month. Some apps provide a spending amount based on your checking account balance and upcoming bills and income.

Although these approaches have merit – we believe that budgeting can be simplified to better support our psychological patterns as humans. Using an average weekly Safe-to-Spend amount gives you the same amount of money to spend every week. This simple change helps create healthy patterns of regular spending and avoids the spending roller coaster that’s common when trying to tackle spending a whole month at a time.

With Weekly, you’re able to check in with your budget and make adjustments every seven days. Monthly budgets only provide a restart 12 times per year. These regular check-ins help to quickly identify when your spending is going off the rails and can help get you back on track.
