Is it possible to create a budget using tags?

I'd like to create a disposable income budget and use tags to include things under it without losing the categorization. For example, I'd still like to know how much I spent in restaurants in a month but want that to be rolled up into a disposable income budget instead of making an individual budget for restaurants.

Hello terenasantana,

Unfortunately there is not any way to create Budgets based on Tags, those can currently only be created by Categories.  I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.  However I do see how this could be a beneficial addition, and I'm happy to tag this post as a feature request so the developers can see it for future consideration.

Regards,
Jesse

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.
