Spending tracking for overseas account

Hi, I spend a lot of time in Europe. I often transfer money from my Canada accounts (tracked by Mint) to my European accounts (not tracked by Mint). How can I keep track of cash going in and out of these European accounts? It's very time consuming to manually update both a transaction and then manually update the debit from the European account. Is there no way to split the transaction and automatically deduct it from the European account? Or, split cash transactions from the amount recorded under "transferred" from the Canadian account? Or, is there some recommended way?

Example:

- $10,000 CAD transferred form HSBC Canada (recorded by Mint) to HSBC France (not recorded by Mint)
- $10,000 CAD credited manually into my HSBC France Account  
- $ 1,000 CAD debited from my HSBC France account for cash spending (balance $9,000)
- $ 100 CAD spent money for dinner
          - can I split this money somehow from either the original 10,000 CAD that I transferred to France? Or alternatively, from the HSBC France account that I have manually created?

Any suggestions would be great. I gave up Mint years ago because I could not figure out how to do transactions like this smoothly. I have recently picked it up again and would like to get cracking.

Hello dneylan,

As your European accounts are not functional in Mint, there is no way to utilize our service regarding those accounts. All we can show is the money transpiring from the accounts you have connected through Mint, which you can use our split transaction function for.

Thank you,

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.
