Emoji to Designate Partially Funding Category Each Pay
I'm paid biweekly, so some categories I fund with my first pay and others I fund with my second (let's not even go into those two months where I have a third pay). There are some categories, however, that I fund halfway with my first pay and the rest with my second. In my mind, I'm "cutting" the category into two pays. For those, I've started putting scissors at the end of the category name 👍. Just thought someone else might benefit from this little tip.
BTW, in Windows, when I press Windows + "." (period) to bring up the emoji search and I type "cut", they look like this 👇, but, have no fear, once you enter it in YNAB they'll look like they do above.
Full disclosure: I don't use Emoji in my budget. But I do do a lot of research on how people track their eyes across a page.
If I wanted an emoji to have actionable meaning, meaning something like "This category needs attention," I would reverse the order so that scissors appeared before the "cut in half" category names and the cute "Foodstuffs" emoji appeared as decoration at the end. That way it would be easy to track my eyes down the screen and see quickly which categories should get which budgeting treatment.
