Envelope Budgets with ClearCheckbook

Need to set some budgets so you don't spend more than you have to? ClearCheckbook's envelope budget tool will help you handle this. Once you set up and fund the envelope budgets, your budgets will instantly update whenever you categorize transactions for an envelope category.
We'll keep track of how much money you've spent toward the budget based on the transactions you've entered into the site. The envelopes will update whenever you categorize a transaction with a category you have a budget for.

Setting up and using the envelope budgets is very easy. All you need to do is select a spending category you want to budget against and then check some optional settings and you're good to go. Once you fund a budget, either by entering an intial fund amount or by categorizing a deposit, the envelopes will update with how much you have left based on the amount you've spent toward that budget category.

In an effort to make it as easy as possible to stay on top of your budgets, we also included an Envelope Budget gadget which you can add to your Account Dashboard. This gives you a quick glance at all of your envelopes and will update dynamically whenever you add transactions from the Dashboard.
