Allocations within accounts

When saving money for occasional expenses (like car maintenance/repairs, etc.), it's important not to keep that money in the main checking account - too easy to use the money for something else. I'd love to be able to set up a separate checking account and in Quicken to track allocations (or funds) within that account. So, for example, I might deposit $1000 a month into the account and I might allocate $200 into home maintenance, $100 into auto maintenance, etc. I'd like to track the account as a whole so I can reconcile it but be able to track amounts deposited into and spent from each allocation or fund. Kind of like Categories and Sub-categories.
