The thing that helped me the most was wiping out many of the categories that never get used and entering my own. I realized that I have some duplicates, and I re-assigned the transactions to the appropriate category and then deleted the duplicates.


There's an easier way to do this for this.

If you have a bunch of transaction in category A, and *all* of them should be in category B:

* Modify the definition of category A so that it's a subcategory of category B.

* Save that change.

* Then delete category A.

You'll be asked if you want the transactions moved into category B. Say yes.

Now, if you want, you can re-create category A. But if you don't actually have a use for it, don't bother.
