A Simple Budgeting program using the envelope system

Simple Budget is a simple "off line" stand alone app that I created for myself to provide a simple “envelope” style budgeting program that would carry over from month to month, and track spending.

Here is a list of NON-features:

  • It does not have any bells and whistles.
  • It is not “internationalized” and uses the “$”.
  • Since I initially wrote if for myself, it is in “English”.
  • It does not encrypt its data file.
  • It does not access the Internet.
  • You can not access it on-line.
  • There is no smartphone app for it.
  • It does not display ads.
  • And it does not spy on you.

What it does do:

  • Keeps track of your spending.
  • Allows you to track your saving for a budget fund month to month.
  • It is easy.
  • It is free. Use at your own risk, It is a work in progress.

Printing from the snap: This command may need to be run after the snap is installed to get the printing working:

sudo snap connect simplebudget:cups-control :cups-control
