What if you’ve budgeted for everything you need in the current month (including your True Expenses!), but still have money To be Budgeted? This is an exciting moment – knowing everything this month is covered is a huge milestone!
Those dollars that still need jobs? You can budget them in the next month. Here's how:
- In the header of the budget, scroll forward to the next month.
- You'll see all your dollars still To be Budgeted.
- Follow the same prioritization sequence you used in the current month, budgeting until To be Budgeted is $0.00.
- Now, back in the current month you'll see that money you just budgeted as Budgeted in Future.
That's it, you've given every dollar a job!
Future Budgeting & To be Budgeted
Once you budget into the future, your most up-to-date To be Budgeted number is in that future month. If you budget $1000 in next month, then return to the current month and budget another $25 to groceries, that $25 will come out of “Budgeted in Future”, not your current month’s To be Budgeted (which will still say $0.00).
