Help! Overpaid CC... now what?
Ok, as the title says, I have accidentally overpaid my credit card. So the credit card account is green, but the credit card category is screaming red, and it has added a bunch of extra money to my "available to budget". I'm willing to leave the money on the credit card and use it to pay off things as I charge them, since I do most of my spending through that card. So in essence, I have just prepaid the month. But how do I get it to not be available in the "available to budget"? Just assign the amount that is on the card in the account to CC category?
The payment category is negative/red as a warning, but you still have the same amount of cash. (A positive CC is effectively a cash account.) That means the decrease in the Payment category must be offset by an increase elsewhere, namely TBB.
Just budget those seemingly new funds to clear the warning. The CC Payment category Available should be $0, since you don't have to pay anything back right now.
