True Expenses Indeed!
I’m a 2 week YNAB user who arrived here after experiencing an avalanche of unplanned for expenses in about a 6 week period. Refrigerator repair: $500; vet bill: $275; new replacement riding lawn mower $5400; repair bill for same mower after hitting a concrete stepping stone and breaking blade on new mower: $125; and more........Stark reality: I needed to do a better job of planning for unexpected, but actually predictable expenses. With the guidance of my new YNAB budget, I am on my way to being better prepared the next time Murphy knocks at my door.
Hi Cadet Blue Lightning !
Welcome to YNAB and to the forum!
It sounds like you had a busy month before signing up! It can be hard when everything seems to be coming at you at once, but it'll be easier now that you're expecting the unexpected! I hope you'll consider starting a journal here so we can follow along with your journey. :)
