Setting up Tiller for a Couple with Separate Accounts


My wife and I will start tracking our finances and budgeting through Tiller. However, we have separate bank accounts and I would love some advice on how to handle the following:

I pay for all the family bills, rent, etc. and she writes me one check each month from her bank account to chip-in on the expenses. How would you recommend I categorize the debit/credit with both her bank account and mine? I’m really green at this stuff so any advice would be appreciated, thanks!

@brandon24. One way to do this is as you pay for the family bills from your bank account, you can categorize these transactions with the appropriate expense (rent, utilities, etc). When your wife writes you a check, you can categorize these transactions as a transfer. More on using the transfer type below.
