Zero-Based Budgeting


(Simon Porter) #1

Any chance that Monzo are considering other budgeting methods? The targets we currently have is certainly much better than I’ve seen from other banks. I’d like to be given a choice of budgeting methods if its possible.

I’m a big fan of zero-based budgeting that’s recommended by Dave Ramsey. With targets, if I overspend in one month then it doesn’t necessarily adjust the next month down. With zero-based budgeting I can only allocate and spend what I have.

To date I’ve been using a program called YNAB to do this but its always been a bit of a chore because of having to manually key everything in. Monzo has me excited as everything gets categorised as you’re spending it.

Hey Simon,

The ‘Targets’ feature is simply the first iteration of many other budgeting tools and options we’d like to develop. Hugo’s mentioned a couple of the longer term possibilities in the Sneak Peek Targets thread :slightly_smiling_face:
