Finalement, peu importe le temps qu’il vous faudra pour apprendre ce que d’autres ont appris avant vous, l’important est d’avoir la force d’admettre son erreur passée et de tout mettre en œuvre pour la corriger.

I recently discovered that budgeting might not be as boring as I thought. Better yet, budgeting might help me achieve my goals in life.

The problem is in this pre-PSD2/XS2A world, syncing my bank accounts with YNAB is a real pain and I tried to automate the process to the best that I could.

Current workflow :

  • Downloading my accounts statements in CSV from by bank (BNP Paribas Fortis) (manual – i tried to automate this step with iMacros for Firefox, but failed)
  • Parsing the CSV and converting it to a valid OFX file via https://csvconverter.biz/ (semi-manual, but at least i’ve got the file just right)
  • Import each file to YNAB through drag’n’drop (manual, but easy)

I started using YNAB only a week ago, I’ll probably have a lot more to say about it in the next few months.
