How do I categorize a cash deposit that comes partly from money I've already withdrawn?


I've read many many blogs and FAQ sections, I am exhausted and here is my last option to solve my problem.

Often, I receive money from parents, I withdraw some money from my own banking accounts, a friend reimburses me cash from a spending I made for him/her, etc. For all those cases, I think I can manage the situation.

However, a problem frequently occurs for me : sometimes, when I don't have enough money in my bank account, I must deposit a certain amount of my cash into this account. 

In the screenshot, you can see the case where I deposited cash (60$, coming from previous various withdrawals and reimbursements of friends, from my wallet) into my bank account. 

My question is then : in what category should I place this transaction? I discovered today a category that we can add in the "Transfer" section, which is called "Cash deposit", should I use it? 

My goal is ultimately not to artificially create a 60$ in my assets that I don't have. 

Thank you really much!

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
