Budget/Checkbook software for mac

I have a copy of Quicken 5.0 for the Mac and like it except for the
budget features.  Currently I have a notebook with allocation pages of
my budget, i.e. Housing, Food, Contributions, Auto, etc. which get an
allocation of money each pay period.  Then I deduct and add to those
allocations (or categories you might say) as I spend money.  I can
always see how much money I have in an allocation, such as $1,200 in
auto, $400 in Food, $2,000 in Housing, etc.
 
I have tried to do something similar with Quicken, but the budgeting
feature doesn't seem to want to work that way.  Does anyone know if
Quicken 7.0 is better or if there is a better program for this?  At the
moment I am setting up an Excel Document to do my budgeting, but would
much rather do all of this in one program.
 
Thanks.

I highly recommend checking out two different programs that will likely handle things better than Quicken.  Basically, you define budgets by categories and it can show you budget vs. spent, etc.

Which you choose will depend on your needs (business vs. personal). The two programs are Managing your Money and MYOB (Mind Your Own Business). If it's just for home (no AR/AP/Invoices, etc.), then I would just do Managing Your Money. You can find out more about them as follows:

  Managing Your Money - http://www.mymnet.com/
  MYOB - http://www.myob.com/

I've always thought the Quicken interface was pretty weak, so I've stayed away from it. However, version 7, may well provide this capability too.

Best regards,

Greg Keene
