  • Okay, so you have assigned more dollars into categories than you have available right now. What you're describing is completely natural. If I only have $900 to my name and I budget $500 for rent and $500 for groceries, my TBB is going to be negative, because I've budgeted more money than is available.

    The question is, how did your budget get that way? Did you have overspending last month that you didn't cover?

  • Hi Orchid Hammerhead !

    I hope you didn't throw in the towel! YNAB is a bit different from budgeting software you may have tried in the past. Instead of entering your monthly income and expenses, you'll use your account balance and budget that amount, like bevocat said.
