Unallocated Amount Questions

Hello, I downloaded GB yesterday and after setting up 3 envelopes and a savings account I added money to my envelopes and on the bottom I chose to sweep the extra into savings. After this I see the unallocated envelope with a balance of zero. If all of my money is managed accordingly in each envelope why does my unallocated amount show up. I would think or I guess expect that the unallocated envelope would only show if I had unallocated money not if it was all account for in every envelope

Hope this I clear

Hi Yoel, 

That's a good question! Think of Unallocated as another Envelope, but one that holds all the money you have not put someplace else. Even if your Groceries Envelope has a balance of 0.00, you'll still be able to see and interact with it. The same applies to Unallocated. 

Hope that helps!
