Event fund, for a wedding, but we are spending also
I have a wedding coming up in may 2018. I would like to have a goal for savings for it. I know about what we are going to spend. Where it gets difficult is that we are also spending money for the goal. So I want the goal to be two way, and ideally category based.
I have a wedding account that we are going to try to do everything out of, but there might be (and have been before I set up the account) transactions that are not out of that account.
I would like to be able to set a goal of say $20,000, and save up for it monthly, but also attach a category (say goals -> Wedding fund) so that when I categorize a transaction as that category then it will deduct the amount of the transaction from the $20,000 goal. (e.g. venue is $4,500 so when it is paid and categorized as Wedding fund, then the goal value changes to $15,500)
When the goal is updated it could also re-calculate monthly spending. Basically I could achieve what I want by re-calculating the goal every time I spend money for the wedding fund, but its a pain in the butt.
