Setting up new budget category erases rollover Everything Else budget.

When adding a new budget category it totally wipes out the rollover Everything Else budget.

Rollover Everything Else from last month $400.
Current month Everything Else budget $600.
Total Everything Else available this month $1000.

Create new budget category "Pet Food" $20.

New available Everything Else budget for this month is $600. Expected would be $980.


Hello there me, 

We wish to inform you that Mint has a "Start each new month with the previous month's leftover amount" formerly "Roll Over" feature that you can enable when you create a budget by month, all your exceeded expenditures and leftover money will be carried over the succeeding months. However, when a budget is set "Every Few Months" the "Roll Over" feature is not available. In this case, all the information form the previous months or budget is not calculated for your current budget in Mint.

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.
