I have two auto insurance policies that have premiums setup to be paid every 6 months. They are due at different times. Is there a way to set both up in my budget?

I have two cars with auto insurance policies under the same company. I have the premiums set up to be paid every 6 months. Both of them are due at different times. For example, the next payment for one is due in January and the next payment for the other isn't due until March.

I tried to setup a separate Auto Insurance budget for both, but was unable to. I'd like to be able to track both in my budget, that way I can save properly instead of guessing as to how much I need to save. One alternative that I thought of is taking an average of the date that the next payments are due, combining the total premium payment for them, and setting that up as what needs to be paid every 6 months. However, this is a flawed workaround that I feel shouldn't be needed.

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.
