Multiple Bank Accounts

You can use automatic transfers between multiple accounts to allocate your money to separate expenses and goals. 

Tip: Think about how you'd like to organize your spending buckets, then assign an account to each one. 

Also only automate expenses that are more routine to help you reinforce and protect good spending habits. The biggest detail to not overlook here is to keep your separate accounts funded. So, set reminders and check-in regularly to make sure the multiple account system works for you.
