forgot to enter an old purchas

I entered an old purchase.  it's from a year ago.  The balance in the account is now is as it should be.

But all of a sudden that amount is subtracted from my "to be budgeted" in this last februari.

I don't know why YNAB is doing this?

  • When did you start with YNAB? Was it this February, or was it much longer ago?

  • Spring Green Koala If entering that past transaction caused overspending in the category you've categorized it to, this could cause To be Budgeted to become negative in the current month! 

    Does that sound like what might have happened?

  • it's so strange. The forgotten transaction I added is dated 03/01/2020. But all of a sudden there is a new negative balance that starts in Feb 2021.

    Why is the negetive balance not starting at 03/01/2020

      Spring Green Koala Because of Stealing from the Future. Your negative TBB shows up in the furthestmost month out (or the first one where the total TBB is negative, which could be earlier but usually is not)
