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. 😉
Superbone Vibrant Unfortunately that debt is left over from a root canal I had to have done back in November that I couldn't put off any longer due to pain issues-hopefully I can knock most of it out this month!
Hot Pink Horse good luck!
Vibrant Oops. My bad. Yes, I thought it was To be Budgeted.
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!
Also, there are no stupid questions. Just stupid answers. 🙂
