These posts were originally posted on the MoneySavingForums (a UK money management site), I am moving my journals across to WordPress to have them in chronological order. I’m not sure how much of other people’s words I’m allowed to copy across from one site to another, so in some sections I may summarise conversations.

Welp, that “stuff I forgot to budget for” immediately and entirely became “clothes” for a new pair of work shoes and some undies
Which is technically fulfilling its job but a little disheartening to call on it so quickly

Somethings gone wrong w my YNAB/Bank accounts, the figures aren’t matching up
It doesnt help that I pre ordered a book of Amazon and then forgot so that’s just come due
But the numbers are all wrong here. I dont understand it.
I went shopping last night at Asda. I spent money off my card. Normally Santander is pretty good at reserving that money immediately and taking it off my “available” balance.
This time, It hasn’t.
I checked all my other accounts, and the receipt, but I definitely paid from that card.
Also, as I said, I pre ordered a book from Amazon some months ago. I cant figure out if I paid for it then or if its coming out if my account now, so I’m moving money about in YNAB just in case. I’m looking at this such as teething pains for adjusting to the app.
