Credit Card Account
Use the same steps above, but check these key points about credit cards in your budget.
A credit card payment category will be created for you so you know exactly what's available for your payment. When you use your credit card to spend money you budgeted, that money will automatically move to your payment category.
If you have a balance on your card, you need to budget to pay it off. Consider setting a Payoff Balance by Date goal!
Unlike money that moves to your payment category from purchases, to pay off this balance, you’ll budget directly to the category.
