Colin Blair and Andy Heaton's "Mr. Budget" Budgeting Software

Executive Summary

Historically, budgeting software has dealt solely with the debits and the credits.  We have identified a need for a more personalized budgeting software that lets the user specify what is most important, while also providing the user with valuable financial advice.  Mr. Budget is a VBA-based budgeting program that gives users an unparalleled amount of control over the organization of money they are trying to save.  

Mr. Budget allows you to create savings categories and then allocate percentages or straight dollar amounts from your income to those categories.  As you set financial goals, Mr. Budget will help you allocate your money to meet these goals while your actual earnings remain safely in your bank account.  Thus, your money is virtually split up and you know how much you can withdraw for certain things while not going over what you have saved for that category.  

Mr. Budget knows that amazing budget software alone doth not a financially secure person make.  Mr. Budget’s financial advice feature utilizes a robust web component to aggregate excellent financial advice on a variety of financial topics for the user using a combination of VBA and HTML 5.
