Part feedback, part idea, part I might be budgeting this in a bad way.
I get paid, transfer money to pots and then what I have in my main account is my budget, along with my food and fuel pot.
For the sake of round numbers
Fuel & Food: £500
As when I spend it comes from that pot, this works perfectly fine.
Yesterday my car had an MOT/Service, I have this money put aside in my car pot. I transferred it in but it has put me over my budget for the month and doesn’t seem to take into account (ha) this money coming back into my budget.
So yesterday morning
Car pot: £300
Moved from car pot, to account
Car pot: £0
So in my logic, my budget should be £203, as I’ve effectively gained £3 from the transfer?
But what it’s saying is that I’m now over my budget as I had £200 and spent £297, so I’m over and I have £0 to spend when there is money there still.
