While I can see the merit in the spending plan budget method for some people, others are used to other types of budgeting. I think this boils down to what makes sense to people based on how they thinking about money, income/expense, etc.

I personally would absolutely love to switch from Mint to Simplifi. There are a lot of things that work better, such as pending items retaining their notes, categories, and tags. Rules are easier to create and manage. However, I cannot monitor my spending in a way that works for me, with easy line items, etc. This prevents me from using Simplifi long term and I may have to cancel my plan. Since I paid for a year, I've been checking in every couple of months, hoping to see a change in budgeting, but so far there hasn't been one. Here's hoping this feedback has been common enough that the product owner(s) consider adding it.

    Agree with your sentiments.  Simplifi would be much improved if they could proactively build in mechanisms for handling different types of budgeting. You got my vote!

    I did find this very interesting Simplifi blog post…

    I’m new to Simplifi and still working through this in my mind too.
