In 1936, the WAFL decided it needed to revamp its competition and one of the first things it looked to was the WA Footballer, which had been the official programme since 1921.
Again, they borrowed heavily from the South Australian competition in renaming the program the Football Budget. Though it was variously re-branded "Real Footy", "Football WA" and "Football 2000" for a few years in the late 1990s and the early part of the new millenium, the Football Budget has run continuously since 1936 and is now also published online in pdf form.

To the end of 2018, a total of 2266 editions of the Football Budget have been published. I'm still looking for 57 of these to have a loose copy of every one of them. Most of those I am missing are from 1938-1943 and 1951, though I am still looking for a few from several other years. And I'm ALWAYS looking for Budgets in better condition. Some of mine aren't in the best nick.
Below is the list of Football Budgets I am missing and, as always, I'd love to hear from anyone who can help. I have also listed here the pre-season editions I am missing from the 1980s and 90s, though they aren't technically Football Budgets.
