But let's keep it simple. Set your spending targets before the holidays heat up. You'll be glad you did.

How to Set a Spending Target

Step 1: Select "Add A New Spending Target" on the budget dashboard within the MoneyTracker tab of your online banking portal.

Step 2: Indicate the tags or categories you would like to track (i.e., "Dining Out" "Fast Food" "Restaurant" "Coffee" "Lunch")

Step 3: Name the Spending Target (i.e. "Dining Out")

Step 4: Set your monthly limit. MoneyTracker will average the applied tags so you can set your budget according to your desired monthly spend and current average
