Adding the value of custom pots & Current Account


So I now have many Pots to help me manage my money better

I used to simply ensure that after my bills are allocated for I left £800 to go the month on. I still do this but I use Pots to manage it further for example, I have pots for, Food, Travel, Going Out, Hair Cut, Vape Juice - the things I know happen every single month, there is then a balance left in the current account which sits there for stuff that isn’t pre-allocated in a pot, or when the pots run out.

I would like to be able to see the total of the above pots plus the current account so I know exactly how much money I have left for the month without needing to manually add them.

Not all pots are equal - I have a holiday pot and an apple pot for annual phone and watch upgrades for example, I wouldn’t want these included in a “total available to go the month on” total

Just me, or am I over analysing? :slight_smile:

It’s not how I could cope with things, but everyone goes about it differently.

Have you tried apps like EMMA? You might be able to get a better overview of everything there.

I’m still yet to find the perfect solution, so the ol’ spreadsheet is still my way of managing things!

I have my SS but having separate pots makes life so much easier as well :blush:

Its already there on iOS

Just click the account button and it top right opposite add money :slight_smile:

It feels like a pretty bespoke issue if I’m honest, wanting a total of some pots and not others. I’m just an individual who doesn’t work that way, though, so I’ve no real concept how popular an idea it would be.

If you don’t ask, you don’t get seems to apply here!

It’s already there on Android as well.
