Since 2005 I've been using a simple MS Excel file to track my budget. It's easy to list all my expenses in columns, and have my dates as rows. At the far right column would be the sums of all the positive(paychecks) and negatives(bills). Going by the row I could figure out when in the future money would run out, or if I have extra money for a few days. I think there is also free version of Excel online. You could use that too.
