Creating a budget can be a time-consuming and not-so-fun task. But Quicken provides a fast way of creating a budget for you, unless you prefer to create it yourself, one painstaking step at a time. You have three choices for how you want to create your budget. You can either create one manually; you can let Quicken create one for you, using all your existing information; or you can import one that you've used in a previous version of Quicken. If you're like me, the less effort expended, the better. Therefore, the following task steps you through the second choice, letting Quicken create a budget for you. You can tweak the budget later if needed.
