Separate Discretionary Budget

I would like to mark each budget if it is discretionary(shopping, restraunts) vs non-discretionary (loans).  My non-discretionary items are all due at different time during the month. 

 I would like to see the progress of my discretionary spending separately to better see if I should be going out to dinner this weekend.  Lets say for example I over spend my shopping budget, it is harder to see how that goes against just discretionary spending when it is mixed in with the entire budget.

Currently the budgets under "Overview" and in the app have that little bar to show progress.  This is where I would like to see 2 totals (or just discretionary really)

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.
