Creating ‘moments’ of spending data / comparison

(Dan Woodhouse) #1

I’m travelling to Brighton this week for a holiday and I’ll be doing most of the spending on my Monzo card. I’ve transferred extra money onto my account, but it would be great if I could group all spending over the next five days into a different moment and to prevent this affecting my monthly spending targets.

Already I’ve busted my monthly target for eating out with a Starbucks and a McDonald’s.

Apologies if this has already been suggested.

lol but isn’t that just like saying ignore all of the targets to control my spending because Im on holiday and that spending doesnt count :slight_smile: - no offence - :slight_smile: but targets are to understand your spending habits ???

A holiday is a one-off event that occurs several times a year, it affects your spending habits because you will often find yourself shelling out a lot more than usual for hotels, petrol, tickets etc.

I’d like to see this idea put forward as the spending on a specific trip can be funded from either savings or working overtime so unless you take holidays each month it’d be great to separate these from my normal spending as on a month-to-month basis I would not usually spend that much money. :+1:

I’d love this, when I’m on holiday my targets for eating out get exceeded by 300% or something + a really high cash withdrawal while I don’t touch the groceries section at all. Being on holiday for over a month messed with my average and while I’d like to file my transactions as normal instead of putting it under “holiday”, this sounds like a great idea.

Yes, this would be extremely useful, and there has been some discussion about this previously – here’s my vote for such a feature in that thread:

And the good news that this issue is on Tom’s radar (click the :arrow_down_small: for Tom’s quote, which also refers to Brighton!):
