Category Budgets Those numbers are the difference between your actual spending in that category versus what you budgeted for that category.

For example, in expense categories, if you budgeted to spend $400 and spend $450, the number would be($50), meaning you have overspent on your budget in this category by $50. In income categories, if you budgeted to obtain $2000 and only got $1900, the number would be ($100), meaning you have not reached your budget goal by $100.
