The aim of the program is to make it as easy as possible for people to do their own personal budgets and keep track of their finances. Using this program you can:

    * Create a budget and organize budget items into categories.
    * Nominate budget items to be paid from either a cash account or via a "Direct Debit" account which allows you to save for big ticket items and ensure timely payment of scheduled bills.
    * Automatically calculates how much money you must put aside each fortnight to meet all your "Direct Debit" obligations.
    * Automatically tells you how much money you must have in Direct Debit account to meet your obligatory payments on any particular date.
    * Record and save expenses against each of your budget categories.
    * Track how your expenses relate to your budget so you can determine if you are over or under-spending in any of your categories.
    * Sort your records into categories or by date.
    * Comes with realistic example to show how things work.
    * Allows you to export any of your reports, records, budget and Direct Debit status to the Gnumeric Spreadsheet program where they can be either printed or used for more detailed analysis.
    * Allows you to export any of your reports, records, budget and Direct Debit status to the AbiWord WordProcessor program where they can be printed or incorporated into a report.

The program is written in the Python programming language and has an easy to use Graphical User Interface which employs the excellent GTK-2.2 toolkit. The glade, libglade and pyGtk bindings were also used.

The author uses this program for his own budgeting needs and finds it works very well for him. However he is very interested in hearing about bugs that needs fixing and even more about patches that fix these bugs!
