Today, I found this tip published by @TheLaravelDev on Twitter. It's a handy piece of code that will allow you to fetch the records created between the start and the end of the month using Carbon in your Laravel project.

// Define scope within your model
public function scopeThisMonth(Builder $query): Builder
    $startDate = Carbon::now()->startOfMonth();
    $endDate = Carbon::now()->endOfMonth();
    return $query->whereBetween('created_at', [$startDate, $endDate]);

// Use the scope like below

Laravel documentation

The whereBetween method verifies that a column's value is between two values.

$users = DB::table('users')
           ->whereBetween('votes', [1, 100])
