Quick stupid question

Quick stupid question here. Can anyone tell me what the red number here next to "budget" is and what it means? Thanks!

  • It's the sum of all your on budget accounts.

    • jenmas  Thank you so much! I appreciate it-obvious in retrospect, but my brain just wasn't making the connection!

  • You also don't want it negative. You should reduce your budgeted categories until that number is $0. That is Rule Number One of YNAB. Give every dollar a job (but no more!)

      Superbone that's their account totals in the sidebar, not their TBB amount. It's red because they have more debt than cash. 😉

      Hot Pink Horse That debt is no big deal at all. Many YNABers would be jealous that it’s that small. 🙂 I have no doubt you’ll be out of it in no time and on your way to prosperity!
