how to work around conflicting accounts

    i've created two accounts - a bank account and a miscellaneous cash account. i want to track what comes out of my bank for bills and what i spend from misc. cash. so i post a transaction of my monthly misc. cash allowance going from my bank account to my misc. cash account. all that's cool. but then when i post a transaction of my misc. cash being "paid" as part of my monthly budget, my misc. cash account shows a deficit.

    i'm sure there's a way to do this, but the money can come from only two places - the bank or my misc. cash. did i choose the wrong way to set up my accounts or what?

    thanks in advance.

    Buddi works on the principle that Accounts are repositories of cash (whether positive or negative), and that Budget Categories are either sources (income) or sinks (expenses) from said repositories.  It may be helpful to read through the Quickstart Tutorial first: take a look at for the first page.

    Hope this helps!
