Logging credit card interest
I'm fairly new to YNAB and I'm currently paying off some credit card debt. I added to the budget the amount I was paying for each account, but I'm unsure how to log the interest that accrues monthly? It seems like the only way I can balance the budget is to add another budget line for interest, but I don't want to make a second monthly payment.
Is the credit card you're paying off a budget account in YNAB or are you just treating that like a normal bill?
If you have a budget account for that card, the interest is like any other purchase on the card -- record a transaction in the CC account. You don't have to make a second monthly payment, in the same way that you don't have to pay twice if you bought a pair of jeans on the card.
Interest is simply you buying more time.
