Transaction straddling both months
Grrr I know I asked this before but I can't find my previous question so apologies. This is a question about how to balance out a payment that was made on my credit card in July that will be deducted from my rent on August 1st. I put the 227.73 payment under "Appliances" in my budget because it was to fix the dryer, but I deduct it from my rent payment (usually $2000 on the 1st). I want the payment to be made against my credit card so I covered the overspending in the appliance category in July with my TBB from income that I received today (July 31). I now want to make my rent payment (less the appliance repair cost of 227.23) which will show as $1772.27 for August 1. I somehow want this all to balance out to zero for the appliance expense (which isn't really mine) and show my regular rent as being paid in August of $2000. I also want to make my credit card payment in today (in July) so it doesn't increase debt, even though technically I don't get the money back until August with the reduced rent amount. I don't even know if this makes sense because I have been doing mental gymnastics and can't figure it out. Any help is appreciated!
