First win

Hello guys,


I'm currently in my second week of YNAB, and I can tell you the thing I've enjoyed the most is rule #2. Embrace your true expenses!


With YNAB I have more visibility over them and it gave me a framework to save for future expenses I know are going to happen.

  • Agreed. That was probably my biggest win when I finally learned to budget properly with YNAB.

      Superbone I agree. I've been doing this for 2 weeks also. I had no idea where my money was going (down the drain, perhaps?).

    That was really our first big win, too.  Just knowing where the heck all your money is going is big.  It's the win that keeps on winning.

  • Hi jserpa !

    Welcome to YNAB and to the forum! :)

    The first month I used YNAB, I learned we were spending more money than I thought we made... on fast food. 😥

    I'm happy to hear you're jumping in head first and tackling those True Expenses! It sounds like you're off to a great start!
