Sainsbury’s is on the way back from the train station and so I often buy lunch and categories these as expenses during the working day. However, when I visited Sainsbury’s one evening last week I found that my transaction was automatically categorised as an expense (presumably because all/the two prior transactions were).
It actually took me a little while to figure out that this was the case. Although I imagine it’s not an easy problem to solve entirely for everyone, I wonder if there’s a better way of handling this? I can’t help but feel that on aggregate Sainsbury’s is more likely to be groceries than expenses. On an individual level yes, I may have made two prior transactions at Sainsbury’s and marked them as expenses but I feel the probability of them being expenses is still low (particularly if my transaction is outside of office hours).
In any case, I’m finding categorising things as expenses very useful!
