When creating or editing a project, you can set the overall budget of the project.  This number will be displayed to you in the project overview screen, and will allow you to compare the planned budget against all items that you have invoiced, or all items that have either been proposed or invoiced.

Having the ability to view the planned budget against actuals will help you better understand how you're project is progressing and whether or not you are on track.
