# Need help budgeting! watch

Announcements
1. I have worked out that my weekly budget will be £83 per week. I have created a fake filled in budget sheet for a 5 week period to see what it would be like if i stayed below my budget and went over it and how that would affect my budget each week. I am not the best at maths,so need someone to check to see if these calculations are right

Week1 -Budget 83,Spent 63,20 left,83+20=103
Week2- Budget 103,Spent 96,7 left,83+7=90
Week3- Budget 90,Spent 96,-6 left, 83-6=78
Week4 -Budget 78,Spent 77,1 left,83+1+84
Week5-Budget 84
2. lay it out better, i can’t make sense of it

So you have a basic budget of £83 a week for 5 weeks (total of £415) and you're adding each week's excess to the next week's budget? The only error I can see is that 83-6=77, not 78. That leaves Week 4 with 0 excess and so Week 5's budget is the standard £83.
