Confused about setting up budget
I'm very new to Mint. So far I have added my checking account and have gone through the last two months' worth of transactions and categorized them.
I'm also trying to set up a budget for bills that get paid occasionally, like car insurance. I have an account for that that I have just added. I also have money from my paycheck going into a separate savings account for travel. I have my credit union transfer money for these expenses. Today I manually split the transferred money into several different categories, which is kind of tedious.
Each of these transactions comes up as "Capital One N" even though they are going into two different Capital One sub-categories.
Is there any way Mint can split, say, $70, into 9 or 10 different categories in my Capital One account, automatically? Or do I have to keep doing this manually?
Also, is there a way for me to keep a running record of how much is in each category. I am not setting these up from scratch. They have balances.
Hope this all makes sense!
