Daily Allowance

I feel like a huge budgeting tool is being over looked. Namely daily budget / allowance. This could be set up many ways:

  1. At the top of the feed there are two running totals, the current left to spend for the month and a second left to spend today. This second figure is just the monthly divided by days until next payday.

  2. You set a daily limit, e.g. £25/day. Then on payday the app then locks the right amount (e.g. 31 days to payday X £25 = £775) in a locked pot and then loads your daily allowance each day. Benefit of this is you don’t see a monthly budget so you don’t think “oh I’ve got loads I can risk a blowout night out”.

  3. A combination of the two.

What does everyone think? I know lots of people who already do this in their heads.

I do it in my head. Your first option would be handy for me.


Yeah, I think this would be a great feature. It makes more sense than the way it’s currently done.

As long as the ‘X divided by days’ is configurable for those of us paid weekly…

This would be a great feature. I really like the idea of both options. It would allow you to budget far easier

Yup this is exactly how I budget my spending so would be a great addition to the app for me :slight_smile:
