Your answer brings up an interesting question: what do you consider a “holiday expense”?
We seem to see it differently.
For me, a holiday expense is anything that concerns the holiday that is out of the ordinary. So trains/flights/hotels will all be holiday expenses. But food or shopping during the trip will not be holiday expenses. Hence, for me, those holiday expenses occur usually before the holiday takes place.
The monthly budget I’ve setup now for holiday expenses is my yearly budget divided by 12. But this isn’t satisfactory. Re-adjusting the monthly budget for holidays at the beginning of each month doesn’t really help as I’d just be re-dividing the remainder of my yearly budget by 12…unless you were thinking I should add my entire remaining yearly budget as my monthly budget and update it monthly? Again, all this requires calculation on my part which defeats the help provided by the feature and turns the holiday target into nothing other than a manual reminder.
Disabling the target while on holiday won’t help because of my understanding of the holiday category as explained above. I usually don’t have holiday expenses during the trip itself.
