Giveaway!

Hello, YNABers! We're hoping to get more folks to join the forum, so we're doing a little giveaway! We'll be sending a t-shirt and the YNAB book to five winners. We'd like to include new folks as well as current forum users, so even if you're not new, please participate! 

So here's how it will work:

  • Leave a comment below with one thing you love about YNAB.
  • On Wednesday, 4/25 I will choose five people at random. 
  • That day, I'll contact the winners privately to get some information so we can send a prize!

A few notes for new folks:

If you haven't created an account with the forum yet, you'll just need to do so before you can comment. Click 'Login' at the top of the screen. If you're already logged in to your budget in the same browser, you'll automatically be signed into the forum. If not, sign in with the same email and password you use to log in to the YNAB app.  If you haven't used YNAB before, you'll need to create an account first. 

New folks will be assigned a random name, avatar, and username, but you can change your name and avatar if you like! Just click your user icon in the upper right corner and select Edit Profile.

  • I love how YNAB is so easy and convenient to use that I use it CONSTANTLY. Instead of checking a spreadsheet when I’m home, I know in real-time if I can spend money on something. I love the fact that I no longer mentally cross my fingers when paying my CC bill in full each month that I’ll have enough left to cover my other expenses before my next paycheck. And I love being ultra-conscious of what I am spending and where.

  • I love the flexibility YNAB allows me when budgeting as well as the ability to set up goals and YNAB will tell you how much you need to budget each month to make your goal.

  • In four years YNAB helped us manage our finances and be credit card debt free on one income. YNAB is a freeing concept that I am so glad to have found and applied to my life.

    I love that YNAB gives me such a flexible, freeing framework to think about money. I thought budgeting would make me feel constrained and limited, but I actually feel so much more free. I’m currently taking a trip and I’m not worried about spending AT ALL because I know I can afford it. I’m able to make priorities and give my dollars jobs to achieve them.

  • I love that YNAB motivated me to get 30 days ahead rather than blow a small windfall on a vacation. (Some of that windfall did go into my family vacation category though!)

  • I love how YNAB has a great app that works fantastic on Android devices. Personally, I love that it has helped me reduce my anxiety since I now have "money worries" crossed off my Things That Make Me Anxious list

  • YNAB has literally rewired my brain in regards to how I now manage my finances. It has curbed my impulse spending and has given me confidence. Confidence in myself, that I can in fact manage my finances and successfully. I’m actually getting emotional as I type this because this is how much YNAB means to me, thank you. Namaste

  • I like that when I have money in my vacation category, I can just use that money guilt free. I like knowing that I have money earmarked for future car repairs. I like knowing exactly what I can and can't spend my money on. It's very calming.

  • I love how it makes me feel when I am fully funded and green early in the month ! It actually gave me a warm feeling inside. I actually think that my endorphin gland nearly exploded!! 😂

  • I love how YNAB helps me roll with the punches. 2k of unplanned vet expenses in 2 months, all my true expense categories may be drained but I didnt have to take on any more debt to pay it. Now to build all my categories back up 😃

  • I love that YNAB syncs to my husband's phone and my phone. It's instant financial communication! YNAB has helped us to never fight about money - which is a big thing since I'm a spender and he's a saver (except when it comes to books!). It's been a really good thing for our marriage! I recommend it to all our friends who get married!

  • I love the power I have over money with YNAB.  I used to spend my money blindly and hope that everything would work out in the end. Now, I know exactly how much I can spend and on what!
