On the "Budget" screen I see different totals than the "Transaction" screen

On the budget screen I have chosen the first three months of the year and see various totals for each category.  When I pick the heading of a specific category, it pulls me to the transaction screen.  I then see a different total in the top left of this screen.  Often very different from what the budget screen said.  

On another note, I have found the Budget tools for Mint completely worthless.  All I want to be able to do is view a specific quarter for the year and see what I have spent to date compared to my allowable budget.  The restrictions on rollover feature is making this comparison worthless.  What is the point of putting in all this effort to categorize transactions if Mint does not prioritize its Budget features as user friendly?!

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.
