rollover versus reset each month-which is better?
I am confused about whether it is better to rollover or reset each month. I have some categories I have set to reset each month, and then I have others that I have rolling over each month (i.e. car repair expenses, utilities etc...) my question is what is the benefit of doing one versus the other? I am concerned that by rolling over I am not getting a real picture of spending each month when I look at the budgets screen since it is calculating any positive rollover in this total. Is it better to just have a set amount to spend each month and even though you are calculating for variable expenses, you don't go over that amount? I am not sure the best way to approach this in mint. Should I lower my overall budget spending amount to only set expenses and allow the variables to fall under the extra ?
