Transfer spending limits between categories

First of all thanks you for this great application. It is really helping my wife and I track our spending and stay on our budget. We just started using it this month and we plan to be debt free in 18 months (TMMO by Dave R)

Often my wife says can we buy this or afford that and I say sure, as long as its in our budget. So the task is to find money from other categories to take money from (dining & clothing) and move it to the category we want to spend more on (gifts).

Is there a way to do this similar to how money is tranfered between accounts?

This way the global budget stays the same but the limits are adjusted. Or is the only way to do this is to just edit each category?

Thanks

There isn't a way to transfer money between budgets. The only way to do this right now is to manually edit the category limits you want to change.

jfcaringi,

The best way to do this is still to edit the budget amount to reflect how much you want it to change by. We haven't built a tool for transferring money between budgets since this can easily be accomplished by simply editing the budget. We try to keep redundant features to a minimum if possible.
