View Changes in Budget for Zero Sum Budgeting


I am a recent Mint convert and I’m using the Savings Budget Template since we use a zero sum budgeting method. Because of this we are consistently tweaking our budget month to month and even week to week for the variable expenses in our budget. Having to switch back and forth from the “Categories” tab to the “Savings Budget” tab is not the most user friendly. Simply put, is there a way to view your budget’s balance (total income vs total expenses) while making edits to your budget categories? I’m under the assumption that any changes to our budget categories has to be done from the Categories tab.

If you adjust the budget on the Savings Budget sheet, it will change the budget on the Category sheet. Like you, I’m constantly adjusting the monthly budgets, and I do it through the Savings Budget sheet.
