Finances UI Overview

The goal of this app was to help me visualize how far I was from my daily budget on a day-to-day basis. Like a friendly helper that let you know if you are on track when you are about to buy that new shiny toy.

Based on how well I was doing in my monthly planning, the app would show me my daily balance. Red meant I was over-budget, black meant the amount I could spend at a given day. The goal was to either meet the daily budget or try not not increase my over-budget spending for the month.

It seemed also very helpful to visualize how much I was spending throughout the month and use those metrics to try to get my spending down. I was then able to cut down on delivering meals and ride-sharing transportation costs.
