I’m not sure what attempt at YNAB this is for me, the first time I tried I was in a toxic relationship and had to budget for the whole family but only using my money my ex would not get on the budget wagon and often spent all the money. I made it work but it was HARD and I eventually gave up. There have been a couple more attempts since then but this time is different. My current  partner and I are doing it together. All our funds go into the joint account (except our own personal fun money) and I allocate it to all the bills and things we want to do. It feels right this time. 

 

So that’s my win YNAB is finally going to work and I’m finally going to have organised money instead of disorganised financial burdens.

    While you can have limited success with only half the team budgeting, it is hard and will always be less than it could be.
