How can I accurately display a budget where automatic bills are paid with a single credit card, but there is also a monthly credit card payment that covers those bills?
Essentially I have all my bills and monthly payments shown on my budget. I have automatic bills and utilities that are paid with my credit card. I want them on the budget so I can monitor them on a month to month basis. I also pay the credit card off with a lump sum to cover the bills and any extra expenses for that month. So on the budget, I will show the bills AND the payment that covers them, which essentially doubles the amount on the budget and makes it look like I am well over budget. Is there a way to accurately represent this on the budget?
