Mint Budgeting Tool is a personal budgeting tool by Intuit. The site collects the user’s bank account information and uses this to populate items such as cash balances, outstanding loans, etc. Users can create different budgets on the site, which will then be automatically updated based on transactions that occur during the month (unless transaction occurs with cash).

With this project, I wanted to build functionality into the budgeting tool that allowed the user to project their budget for a period from 6 months – 2 years. The intent behind this was to allow the user to take advantage of the up-to-date account and transaction information on Mint, while being able to project/edit income and expense items easily in Excel. This spreadsheet provides a much more dynamic budgeting environment that allows the user to accurately project their financial position up to 2 years from the time when the budget is created.
