Any tips on how to deal with unexpected expenses? I have True Expenses categories that I'm not sure if or when I need to use it. I want to be able to move my True Expenses in future months if I need it elsewhere. It's currently on Monthly Budgeting Goal. How else can I contribute monthly but move it any time in the future too? After month, do you just disregard the Available column since the month is already done?
Hey Jaime Jaurigue ! For categories like Auto Maintenance, I budget a set amount each month. The Available amount grows with each month when there is no spending, and the money sits in the category until needed.
Your budget is flexible, so if you budget $200.00 to Auto Maintenance this month... but then need some of those dollars in another category in July—you can move money. This video has some great tips and examples on predictable and unpredictable True Expenses!
