It's a small purchase for y'all but it's a huge step for me

Hi ya there,

Have been using YNAB for 3 weeks, and today i received the christmas present for my cat. That maybe is uninteresting to many, but for me, and my money, it's a huge step toward controlling the money leakage.

I bought that hammock for radiator for $30, that wasn't budgeted, but the category in which it goes, was : Home maintenance.

I'm super glad having bought that little nothing, and so is this lazy bum of a cat. I'm even more glad that before YNAB, i would have bought it and would say "I don't care, i'll figure out later how to manage that money leakage".

 

And by popular demand - more like my cat asking to be in the interweb chilling in his new bed -, here is the thing.

 

Thanks YNAB to allow me some rest and peace regarding the management of my money.

And the wins are shown everyday, loving to see the AOM growing daily (16 days as of today).

 

sorry for my english, not my mother tongue, I iz french.

    I'm an over-the-top dog lover, but darn that is a cute cat!  I don't think I've ever said those words before...  

    I'm happy that this purchase for you not only benefited you, but your beloved chat as well :).  That makes it double special! :D

  • As a fellow lazy cat owner, I love this.

    (Is the cat lazy or the owner? I'm not saying.)

    You're doing well, to have learned already how to make categories work for you. It took me longer than it did you, but I finally got there and it's been a life saver.

    I hadn't seen this radiator hammock, or I might have gone that route. Instead, I opted for a shelf atop the radiator, and my lazy-bones guys love it. I showed this pic to my sister and she said, "It looks like they're melting!"

    PS: You English are good! Betterer than mon French. :)

  • Another serious cat (and dog) lover here. Here's Phin in his Christmas present! He and his partner OBE like it so much I might have to get another one so they can each have their own.

  • BTW, I have a category Pet Expenses that includes Food, Vet, cat sitter and cat equipment. The cat equipment one gets used fairly often :-)
