This is not really a success story, just a comment about being careful how transactions are entered. I entered my paycheck today, available next month. Then, since it's my last one of the month (unless we get paid on Thursday instead of Friday next week), I decided to work on June's budget. I was confused why the starting buffer was so much lower than previous months. I figured it must have to do with the cash I took out of my paychecks that I wasn't accounting for anymore. I finally found the problem, I entered it as an outflow instead of an inflow.
Now I'm back to fully buffered and not completely baffled where the money went. That explains why the checking account balance wasn't as high as I thought it should be.
