Thank you YNAB!!

My daughters 16th birthday is April 1st... we were talking the other day and she mentioned signing up for driving lessons. ...

que panic..... ack I completely forgot I said 1.5 years ago I would pay for them before she turned 16!! I now have 3ish weeks to find $690. I looked at my budget to see if I could move money around to make it work.... I found that most of my true expenses are overfunded because I just keep plunking money in them and because I got my tax refund so I threw a ton in there to have a serious cushion. I am fully funded for march and half funded for April and I havent even gotten paid this month!! Plus I have a work bonus coming this month and another coming next month...... 

So I moved money around and I now have fully funded driving lessons for her birthday and the best part.....  March is still fully funded and April is still just as funded!!!! 

This is a really great feeling!!!

If you need me I will be over here basking in budgeting awesomeness

  • WOW!  To find almost 700 bucks and not even stretch your budget!  YNAB is a great tool!  Of course the system only works if you work the system, so GOOD GOING!
