Looking to group certain budgets together. For example I have a House and Rental, and I would the associated budget categories to be nested under a parent category.

As mentioned above I would like to have a parent category:

House and Rental, then under the appropriate parent category / budget and the child budgets under.


House - Parent budget

  • House - Power - Child Budget
  • House - TV - Child Budget
  • House - Water - Child Budget

Rental - Parent Budget

  • Rental - Power - Child Budget
  • Rental TV - Child Budget
  • Rental - Water - Child Budget

Does this currently exist or is there a possible work around? The current layout of the budget works, however I just want to see a high level view of my over-all spending. Where is stands now I just see 'home spending' but I would love for that to be broken out by 'home' vs 'rental'

Thank you

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.
