Why doesn't my cash spending count toward trends?

I mostly use cash to pay for groceries, rent, etc.

I've used Transfers to Cash Spending and have been manually entering cash spending with categories, deducting automatically from ATM withdrawals.

Is there a way to see my cash spending in a pie chart by category, or add my cash spending by category to money withdrawn directly from my account so that I can see where my money is going?

Answer

Hi lindsaylou9,

You can adjust the Trends by using filters; in the box that says "Show transactions that match any" (and "any" can be changed to "all" by clicking on it), you can type in category names or other criteria to track. For example, you can put in "cash" and it will give you the option of "Cash and ATM" to use as a filter for your currently desired Trends view. 

You can use the other filters to the right of that box to further narrow down what you're looking at, which includes specific accounts and date ranges, and then have it displayed as a pie chart by clicking the icon for it underneath the aforementioned filter box. The pie chart view might not be usable on all the different Trends views, so bear that in mind.

Let us know if you need any further assistance.

Thanks,
Mint Mike

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.
