I’ve been using YNAB for years and recently found tiller, trying to get started and running into some difficulty. I’ve created a Google sheet with the tiller budget. Sorry in advance, quite a few questions, but I am deeply confused.
Say I have $10k in net assets that I’d like to assign into budgeting envelopes. The money available to budget seems to come from transactions categorized as income, which is fine, but not sure how to allocate for the money I already have before the income transaction occurred. How do I account for the assets in bank account balances prior to transaction import dates?
Where am I supposed to be entering the budgeted amounts for each category? I see that I can make adjustments using a whole value or relative value with the b+/b- syntax, but is that the appropriate place to input the initial category budget for each month, or only adjustments?
It appears that the spreadsheet will update with each new period/month. How do I budget for next month before the 1st of the month?
Edit: I just found the budget history sheet, I think this problem is solved.
I’d like to live off last month’s income. To do this in YNAB, I would categorize income from, for instance, November as “Income” category. Then I would make a negative budgeted value for November’s income in the month of December to make it available for budgeting in December. How would I do that with tiller’s spreadsheet?
