How to do this split--expert level question probably
How can I rig these up as a split?
I made the following transactions:
Gas: 13.33, bought by mom, I owe her
USPS: 10.05, bought by me to pay mom back, so I owe her less
Thanks for help.
Hey boodles8 !
I have a question about these. Did you want to enter the Gas and the USPS transaction both in your budget? Since your mom made the first transaction, did you want to enter that on your end just to have record of her buying it for you?
If so, I would make one change to the screenshot HappyDance provided. I'd change the Gas Station purchase to Inflow (since your mom gave you this money), then the USPS transaction as Outflow (since you spent that money out of your account). That would leave you with an inflow of $3.28 - money you still owe your mom (which you can budget towards another category where you plan to buy something else to pay your mom back, or enter a cash transaction if you give her change).
OK, thanks to both. I could do either. I like the idea of making a category to track what we owe each other. I like entering them Faness's way better overall, though.
These sorts of transactions never fail to boggle my mind. I never can figure out how to enter them, split or no. I'm sure I'll be posting more such questions as life goes on.
