Cash for item paid in previous month; item returned current month
I'm curious how others handle this. I did a search on YNAB and here on the forum, but for some reason, can't find an answer. :)
At the end of December, I made a cash purchase at AutoZone. We realized I bought the wrong thing, but I didn't have time to return it until today.
How would you handle that in YNAB:
Should I do the refund as the category originally purchased and then move the money from the category to the "To Be Budgeted" at the top of the Budget screen?
Or should I enter it as category "Inflow: To Be Budgeted"?
So, I went ahead and did the refund to my Household Needs category, which was where it had been assigned. I moved the money To Be Budgeted.
Now it's showing:
Under Goals, it's now telling me that my Monthly Contribution is now underbudgeted by $93.09.
My Savings Goal is $50 a month for those random things that we need. I haven't budgeted that yet (was waiting for our first pay day of the month.)
I'm so confused.
