Hi, new snooper here. So far I’m liking what I see and learning some good insights and methods for managing my money.
I’ve had a look through the forum and apologies if I’ve missed anything or I’m posting in the wrong section, but I see that currently rolling budgets are not supported.
This is a feature that I’d very much like. For me, unless someone suggests an alternative method, I’d consider it essential. I am open to new ways of working but maybe a couple of examples might help.
This is simplified somewhat but I save, say, £10 every month for my child’s birthday. I transfer this to a separate account which is visible by Snoop.
My way of working is that I budget £10 each month to cover this transfer. The budget builds up so in theory I should have £120 per year. At any time I may buy something for him. I’d pay out of my main account and transfer the money in from my ‘birthday’ account. The budget amount reduces and I know what I have left to spend.
Another, maybe simpler, example:
I have a couple of memberships. One is paid monthly (call it £5) and one is paid 6 monthly, (call it £30). Both payments come out of my main account.
Therefore I budget £10 a month. £5 comes out every month but the budget builds up. Every 6 months I know that £30 of my main account balance is available for when this payment is made.
For me I need a way of knowing how much I have in my ‘memberships’ pot or want to spend from my ‘birthdays’ pot without being told I’m over budget.
Hope this makes sense and as I say, I’m open to new methods.
