Move Money on Mobile
Rigid budgets break. If you've tried one, you know this.
Instead, it’s important to use Rule 3 to change your budget when your needs or priorities change. It's okay! Moving money from one category to another, like covering overspending, keeps you on track. That way you can trust your budget.
- Find the category you want to move money to and swipe right.
- Use the From line to select the category you'd like to move money from.
- Adjust the amount (YNAB will default to any overspent amount) and hit Done!
You can also move money by tapping To be Budgeted, an easy way to give those dollars jobs. That’s it—you’ve rolled with the punches!
It's good to get in the habit of checking your categories before spending, and make the move prior. That way, you're using your budget to inform choices—not react to them. The mobile app makes this easy! You can even pin your most-used categories to the top of your budget.
