Why are some transactions in budget subcategories I created appearing correctly in budgets, but the same transactions also appear under "Everything Else"?

I have set up budgets for several sub-categories in the Auto & Transport category, and they are each being tracked correctly. However, the same transactions that are tracked in each of those sub-categories also appear under the Everything Else category that appears beneath all the budgets. This makes it look like I am having Auto & Transport transactions that are not being tracked or are categorized incorrectly - but they *are* being categorized and tracked correctly, and so they should *not* appear under "Everything Else."

Does anyone have a fix for this? My current workaround is to create an overall Auto & Transport budget, just to get these expenses out of "Everything Else" where I should be able to see only transactions that my budgets are missing.

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.
