Paid a cost early, is overspent for this month, rollover to next month?
I have a payment category for our Common Account.
Since my girlfriend got paid late, I already paid the monthly amount of let's say 300$ in July (this last day), but I'm normally due in August.
Now this comes up as overspent in July, is it possible to have the app know that this is a payment for August? That is was just paid early?
I'm assuming the money for it is in your August budget? Since you really wound up paying it in July, you should pull the funds back into July as well. That way everything reflects reality. I would just flip to August, move the funds back to TBB, flip to July and cover the overspending. Then everything will be lined up again as it should.Reply
If you paid early, you must have used money you were planning to use elsewhere. That money is gone, so continuing to include it in the plan (a.k.a., budget) is nonsense.
Move funds from elsewhere to reflect reality. When your GF gives you money, consider restoring whatever category you robbed. However, also consider keeping that money reserved to pay this "early" bill next the time your GF isn't paid on time.Reply
