Right, so I have all my accounts in Euro in Gnucash. That’s now a problem since I’ll be spending US Dollars for the next 3 months, but I’ll be servicing loans and bills directly from my account in Euros.
I created a “Cash in wallet – USD” account, with a default currency of USD. That worked a treat when I transfered €200 over to it. Up popped a dialog box asking for the exchange rate or some amount. I entered 230, as that’s the USD value I got back. Nice.
That still doesn’t solve my problem though – do I create a USD version of my most used accounts? Anyone?
Do I simply convert ATM withdrawals over to Euro, and track my spending in Euro still? There’s always a few “misc” entries every few days when I can’t remember what I had for lunch 3 days ago. “Misc” entries could take care of any discrepencies.
Note: I am not doing this for business reasons. This is for my personal records!
