Creating a new budget resets the "Everything Else" rollover amount

This has happened multiple times for me. It also de-selects the "Start each new month with the previous month's leftover amount" checkbox under Everything Else. I have contacted customer service about the issue and it seems to have been dropped. Has anyone else experienced this? The issue seems to lie in the fact that attempts to adjust the amount budgeted for Everything Else to accommodate the new budget, however there is clearly a bug in the way it has been implemented.

I'm sorry for any inconvenience with the Everything Else portion of budgets.  This is meant to be a catch-all for categories not used in budgets and, while you can create one, is not meant to be an actual budget.  It's really just there more for informational purposes and to show opportunities for new budgets in categories where spending is occurring.  When creating a new budget this will effect the categories included in that, so if you did create an Everything Else budget, the categories included in it change, and unfortunately this will reset/remove that everything else budget grouping.  Regardless, I do understand your points so I have tagged this post as a feature request to bring it to the attention of the developers for future consideration.

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.
