Do I have a Problem?
I've been using YNAB for a period of months; still learning the finer nuances of it.
But now I'm finding myself checking all accounts twice a day to check for updates in spending. And what's worse, I seem to enjoy it?
Is this normal?
That is normal, YNAB is fun to use and will definitely help your net worth increase over time. I have been using it since 2013 and check it often and actually reconcile all accounts daily. I also prefer manual entry and manual reconciliation over auto import, I feel I have more awareness and control using the manual method.
There's this little note when I haven't done Duolingo today... it pops up and says "you could improve your German in 15 minutes! What does 15 minutes on social media give you?"
I look at YNAB the same way. The frequency of my messing with it can vary depending on what's going on in life, but I do a full sync-up twice per week usually, or at least once/week while on travel. I just remind myself, it's better than spending that time doomscrolling on social media, or playing a game :)
