I want to run my budget in line with my pay day, not month. From 18th Feb to 17th March. Is there a way of doing this?

Go to Envelopes, Edit and you can change the budget start date at the top of the screen. It says "Starts on the (whatever you choose) of the month". You can also change the budget periodicity but I doubt that is of interest in this case.

Hope that helps

Hi Kat, 

Colin's exactly right! You can change the start date of your budget period to match your real life pay day. 

To do that on the website, you'll click on Add/Edit while on the Envelopes tab (https://goodbudget.com/envelope/edit). Then, you'll see the numerical drop-down menu to the right where you can change your start date. Be sure to save those change when you're done. 

Thanks!
