You can choose a budget period such as weekly or monthly for your regular Envelopes, and also have Annual Envelopes, but currently we do not support having both monthly and weekly Envelopes.
If possible, we recommend users convert their weekly budgeting Envelopes into Monthly ones by changing the budget amounts. If that wouldn't work for you, let us know more about you particular situation and we'll work something out!
Just some feedback on why some of us would want both Monthly (rent, utility bills, etc) and Weekly (gasoline, spending cash) envelopes at the same time.
Thanks for your feedback on why it would be helpful to have both Monthly and Weekly budgets. I've gone ahead and added your voices to the requested feature in our tracker.
In the meantime, @jamuraa, another workaround you can try could be to change the budget amount of your "walking around money" to what it would be weekly. This way, you'll be able to fill it up for the week and won't risk overspending. I know that if you're on the monthly budget, the black ahead/behind line will be off, but it's something you can try for now.
Also, I have a "weekend" monthly envelope set up with $86.67 going into it each month. Every Friday I transfer $20 out of that envelope into my spending envelope. An automatic transfer can be set up to do that for you, if you would like. it will automatically handle months with 5 Fridays in them. These are my calculations for this: 52 weeks X $20 = $1,040. $1,040 / 12 months = $86.67 per month
That's just 2 different ways how I handle weekly expenses nicely right now.
Just my two cents, for what it's worth. :-)

Just wanted to let you know that we just rolled out multiple budget period support on the web today! You can now create Envelopes for every two weeks, monthly, 6 months, etc. You can add them in the More Envelopes section of the Add/Edit Envelopes screen (https://www.goodbudget.com/envelope/edit).
Feel free to check it out and let us know if you have any questions.
So, I guess my question is, do the multiple budgeting periods show on the Android app?
