Monthly/Annual total in a sub-category

Is there a way to get a total spending number in a category, for example: I want to see the total amount I've spent on Amazon from January '20 to January '21.  I can bring all those numbers up in "filter" but there's no final total.  I'd have to input a year's worth of nickels and dimes on a calculator.  There must be an easier way.  Thanks!

  • In the Reports, select Spending Report, and then click the "All Categories" (it might say "Some Categories") in the top left of the header.  You can select whatever category you want, and it will give you a report based on just those categories.

    You can experiment with different reports, they all allow you to choose what categories you want to include.  Hopefully you can find what you're looking for in there.  Just play around until  you've got what you want.

  • You could also look at your accounts. Select All Accounts, then in the upper right-hand corner - Filter by the dates you need. Then search for "Amazon". Select all of the checkboxes and it'll tell you how much you spent.

      Thank you Orchid!  That works!  I think you're the only on who understood my question. I thought I was pretty clear that I meant not a category, but within a category.  Thanks for picking up on that!

  • In the web based app, go to All Accounts view you do a search so it filters the dates and categories you want. Then you select all (it's the checkbox next to the word Account, well the flag icon is between them) on those transactions and it will show you a total in the top right of your screen

    I'll be the jerk to come in here and point out that Amazon is a retailer, not a category. You can buy things in all sorts of categories at Amazon. It's like having a category called "money to spend". It's not functionally useful.

      Molly McGuire It's not that I didn't understand the question. The others provided answers. I just responded to something that was stated in the question as written. Payees, Accounts and Categories are three different things that perform different functions within YNAB.
