The way total monthly goals work
Background: Hey everyone! It is my second-day using YNAB so there is still a lot that I need to learn so I have a question. I am using the toolkit for YNAB. My rent is $2,000 a month. I use student loans to pay for most months out of the year and I also save $1,000 a month to pay for the months not covered. For the months of May, June, and July I have $2,000 already budgeted out and have hit the $2,000 goal.
Question: Is there a way in May to show in my total monthly goals that I am sending $1,000 to August (The first unfunded month) or is that something I'll have to keep track of manually? Am I doing this wrong? I could really use some help.
