Help me figure out my cc error? (probably easy one!)

Hi.  My costco card is something we pay off every month.  I've been doing really good and  now I've had a hiccup.

What do I need to do to fix it?  The categories themselves are fully budgeted for both April and May.

  • I bet the card balance went positive in April due to the credit, and when that happens, it's easy for money that should have been in the Credit Card Payment category to end up elsewhere in your budget.

    The solution is the same no matter what caused it: budget enough money to the Credit Card Payment category in the current month to make the Available amount equal the current balance. Please let me know if you still have questions!

      Matthew OMG, I'm so stupid!  

      Nevermind. I put the payment in the "outflow" column and it made it all wonky!  It's fixed. 


      Thanks for your quick answer!

    • cpshaye Or there's that—I'm glad you found it! I've done the same thing.
