I thought I got the idea of pots but once I used them my way, it didn’t work out.
My idea was to create a pot for e.g. ‘house holding bills’, then map my direct debits for electricity, gas etc to that very pot. I hoped I will then have a separate record that shows me the summary of costs for house holding bills deducted from my account over the time.
My assumption was that even when a pot doesn’t have any money in it, the money is taken from the main account but the deduction still listed as part of the pot. To my surprise, the transaction history in my pot is empty though.
Does that mean that a pot only records deductions when it was loaded with enough money?
An explanation would be much appreciated!
