Budgeter Calculations are Not Correct
The budgeter calculations are not accurate. The subtotals on a $40,000 budget add up to $41,440. The subtotals on a $50,000 budget add up to $51,800. Once corrected, it is very handy to have your estimates and actual expenditures available at all times.
Thank you for this feedback. Yes, the budgeter tool is an estimator and it does round to the next nearest number. This means that many times your estimates are going to be a bit higher than the budget. If you have specific feedback on how the tool could be better, please send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org – Attn: Keri.

Please adjust the budgeter so that I can change the "recommended" amount. It works fine as a suggestion for what most people spend in that category, but I know that for some items I will spend significantly more or less than the recommendation. As is, I am having to enter values into the "already spent" category, and I haven't actually spent that money, I just need to see what my figures are totaling and there is no other way.

My budgeter is also not correct, but it's because there are categories missing that show up on the app, but not the website. Interestingly, the website shows the correct total on the dashboard, but as soon as you navigate to the budgeter, the total decreases and several items are missing and not included.
Please make it so that you users can either input their own budget numbers or at the very least redesign the current budgeter so that it reallocates the money that is recommended but not used back into the tasks remaining.
My budgeter is also incorrect. I have nothing plugged in (deleted all of my costs) and it still says I've spent around $5,800.
