New Month, Total Budgeted: $0?
I just started with YNAB last month and set up monthly funding goals for each category when I started in early May. Today (6/1), I used the Underfunded link to fund the envelopes for this month and all looks good.
Yet, on the right side it shows $0 budgeted despite the fact that the budgeted column shows amounts. Also, I spent $7.90 for breakfast this morning and that was entered. Yet, the total activity in the right column is $0.
Is something wrong here?
Are you using a holding category to send income forward one month? If so then the negative budget amount in that category equals the total amount budget to the rest of the June categories and they offset.
I suspect this is the case because your funds for June and Budgeted for June is zero in the header.
To make the numbers right, the money has to be removed from the holding category in May, not June.Reply
