Feature Request: Adding Rollover Money back to Income for Redistribution to Other Budgets

Hello! I think it would be very helpful if we could take unspent rollover money currently tied up in our budgets and add them back into the income for the current month. For example, I've been budgeting for clothes every month, but haven't gone shopping, so my budget rollover for clothes shows as -$500. However, I had a deer run into the side of my car so now I have to pay a $300 insurance deductible. Since I know I won't be spending $500 in clothes this month, it would have been really helpful if I could "reset" the clothes budget and add that unspent money (a.k.a previous months' unspent income) back to my income for this month for my "sevices and repairs" budget. This would be especially helpful when I overbudget in certain categories.

Please consider adding this feature. Thanks!

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.
