If I am manually logging cash transactions AND keeping my ATM withdrawals as "Cash & ATM" instead of "Transfer to Cash Spending", are my transactions doubling up?

For example, if I take out $100 for the ATM and then log a $50 clothing purchase using that cash, is $150 shown in my spending if it's not split out from that ATM withdrawal?

I have tried using the auto-split from last ATM withdrawal function, but it's spotty on the mobile app and doesn't always work. Trying to go back and split after the fact is tedious and complex (unless there is a better way of doing).

I prefer the accuracy of having the whole ATM withdrawal amount accounted for via the "Cash & ATM" method vs. the "Transfer to Spending" method, which supposes you spent less than you did if you don't log every transaction. Just trying to find the simplest and most accurate way to keep good records of cash,

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.
