Some feedback on this.
* Define "this week". Take for instance mortgages, in my case, my mortgage is deducted from my account on the 8th of each month. Sometimes this is on a non-banking day (weekends, holidays, ...) causing it to be deducted on the next banking day. So 'this week' is sometimes 'next week'. Of course you could learn to work around that, but generally I think the period of a week is to short to safely predict spending limits.
* Running period of 30 days: some wages are payed the last (working) day of every month, making it unpredictable (or at least more difficult) to use the 30 days since this would cause a deviation of already 10-12 days by the end of the year. There are more 31-day counting months in a year than 30-day counting ones. I'd suggest to use the common understoud concept 'month' referring to the month we're in. Everything happens within that conceptual timebox, not within a 30-day timebox.
