Can I include credit card payment budget to credit card payoff goal?

I have a goal set up to pay off my credit cards. In my monthly budget, I include the total of my credit card minimum payments, to make sure that money is spoken for. However, for the budget to work out for the month, I have to lower the goal amount per month to not include the minimum payments, but the goal counts the minimum payments in its plan. Is there a way to budget for the minimum payments, and have mint see that they are part of the credit card goal. 

ie, if my minimum payments are $100, and my credit card goal is $400, not have the budget look like $500 total including the goal on the side "income/spending/goal/left over" box.

This is on the web, not the ios app, which I don't think has the same detail.

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.
