I want to use an “other” envelope to track my contributions to charitable organizations. The way I would like to handle this is to establish a certain amount that I want to give every year (i.e. the envelope amount) and then fill the envelope as money is given until I reach the goal.
I also want to track this “annual giving” from September to the end of August of the following calendar year (i.e. September 1 2021 to August 30 2022).
I only started tracking my budget in GB as of Jan 1 2022, but I would like to reflect the fact that my Charity envelope is already half full for example (i.e. amounts I’ve already contributed since September 2021)…
What would be the simplest way to do this (NOTE: I don’t really care about the income and individual contributions that went into getting to this point with the envelope)?
