Set up my finances!
Today I finished putting in all the transactions that couldn’t be downloaded from my assorted banks, and it’s so very lovely to see all my balances laid out so clearly and to know exactly where I stand. I also discovered a discrepancy of £200.17 (in my favour) which seems to have gone missing between the first and second statements for my UK working account, so I have put things in motion to get that fixed – got to call them back tomorrow. I even reconciled both my Australian working account and Visa account, and it was all so simple! I know this sounds like excess rapture, but if you’d seen the struggles I’ve been through over the past ten years with MYOB, then you’d understand – this feels like a HUGE leap forward. I now need to reconcile the remaining accounts and then look at setting up a first-draft budget. Time for that tomorrow
