You know you are a YNABer when....the first thing you do when you get a receipt is say to yourself "ok which category will those go in or better yet, is this a split transaction!".

Hi my name is Bill and I am addicted to YNAB!

Bill

p.s. Feel free to add your own version of being a YNABer!

    You know you are a YNABer when you antagonize over buying girl scout cookies because you can't figure out if you should categorize it as groceries or charity.
    (I ended up buying two boxes and putting one under each category)

    Love it!

    You know you're a YNABer when your thoughts switch to 'Yikes, the balances in my accounts are only '$ insert a figure in the hundreds or thousands' instead of 'Yikes, the balances in my accounts aren't enough to buy me dinner'.

    . . . you see a new user struggling with a concept, and it hurts that you don't have time to write an explanation on the forum.

    When you don't notice your account balance is rising because you're focused on budgeting instead of dwelling in transactions.

    When you look at a large deposit and smile thinking; 'I'm glad that those money already have a job.'

    Makes you feel in control. Instead of letting the money control you.

    I'm so glad I found YNAB.

    You know you are a YNABer when you no longer stress about how you're going to pay the next bill. (The money is waiting in the bank.)
