Tracking with a new budget

So I have been using YNAB for the past 3 months and it has been incredibly helpful with saving more and paying off my debt. This summer I am going away to complete my second semester for my masters degree.  Summer I just spent without any plan and ending up having to transfer from my savings. My spending is entirely different while I am there and I plan to just use a new budget so it doesn’t clutter up my everyday budget. My question is if I link my card to my new budget will it show up on my everyday budget? I currently have a savings category in my everyday budget for “Masters Spending Money” can I redirect the transactions there and then put them in the specific categories in the other budget? I don’t really want to spend the time input the transactions manually.

  • Sounds overly complicated to me.  Why not just keep all spending within the same budget but use new categories for the Sumer spending.  You can hide the temporary categories when you are finished with them and they are balanced out.

    Or you could just track the spending in the one Masters Spending Category.
