*FOR THE PURPOSES OF THIS PARTICULAR TEMPLATE, THE WEEKS ARE:

WEEK ONE: May1-5
WEEK TWO: May 6-12
WEEK THREE: May 13-19
WEEK FOUR: May 20-26
WEEK FIVE: May 27-31



Even if you don't budget weekly, you can still put the spending on the weekly spending charts! (IE: if you budget monthly, just put your spending/saving down, and your total budget at the bottom in the appropriate place, under monthly totals.) Or you can go into the previous challenge and swipe the other template. Up to you! Post your outcome on the bottom, at the end of the month!! (over budget/under budget)

Good luck!!
