Keep track of WAMed categories?
Is there a way I can view which budget categories I WAMed throughout the month. I typically budget and use about $150/month for unexpected expenses. Some of the money goes to categories where I overspent in a budgeted categories.
I can easily see the expenses, like a parking ticket, I covered using the unexpected expenses categories, but I can't review at the end of the month which categories I overspent and covered with money from my unexpected expenses. What could I do to review those overspent categories?
But since you asked about this, I'm now curious and wondering how do you intend to use those details?
Thanks for your feedback. I think I'm just curious about keeping track of my unexpected payments category, which has been about $150 per month for the last several months.
I'm glad the category is there because I try very hard not to WAM other categories.
But I would like to lower that unexpected category money, so I need to figure which categories I seem to be overspending regularly. Last month I think it was gas and software budgets. Maybe I'm underfunding those areas, or maybe I need to be more hardline about staying within budget in those areas.
Hope the above makes sense.
