I always just put the amount in that i am budgeting for a bill i.e. $200 not -200. But you are saying that it says negative because i have budgeted but have not earned the money for it yet.
There must be something wrong. As you can see below, still red still negative. I have received all of my income for the month and it has been categorised. I still have about $800 unallocated still.
Perfect examples there: Rates Allocated $138, $0 in actual but still -$138, but then i have Fuel: Allocated $200, $249 in actual.
Souldn’t that be a - amount in the Fuel category as i have gone over the budgeted amount? And a + amount in the Rates category as i have not spent that amount. If i was to roll this over it gives some carzy figures.
In regards to my outstanding amount, i find that i like to keep it as a buffer if i need to shuffle money to unexpected things, but allocate it by the end of the month
