The envelopes are adding up all transactions since January 1st even though I have clicked start on 1st of the month.

I have imported my transactions and the envelopes are adding up what I have spent from Jan 1st until now for the envelope amounts. I need these to just be month to month. Example. I have Food: Eating out #1 and Food: Eating out #2. The #1 is for the first half of the month and the #2 is the second half of the month. My Food: Eating out#2 is showing a negative available balance because it has added up the January expenses even though I am in February now. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Joel,

With Goodbudget, you can control over when and how your Envelope refill. Click on the "Fill Envelopes" button to choose how you want to refill  your Envelopes for February. Change the date of the fill to "2/1/2015" so it happens as of the first of the month.

You can then schedule the transaction to run every month by clicking on the checkbox next to "schedule this..."

Hope that helps.
