Setting a goal.

I have 12000.00 in a savings account. I want to set a goal of saving 1000.00 a month into the saving acct. How can this be setup. 

I have read about goals and watch a video but I don't understand it. Thanks for your help.

  • You want a monthly savings builder goal for $1000 a month.

  • Categories and accounts are 2 different things in YNAB. Read this!

    Accounts are where your money lives. Categories define the purpose of your money. Matching them is extra busy work.

    You can set goals for your categories, but not for your accounts.

  • What purpose will that money serve? Make a category representing that purpose (e.g., Vacation, Emergency Fund, New Car, whatever), create a Goal to remind you to budget 1000 each month.

    You should also attribute purposes for the 12000 if you haven't already.
