Cash Envelopes

We are on month 5 of our budgeting and we have made some serious progress!

One of my favorite things about the budget is the cash envelope system. I use regular letter envelopes, but I make them festive each month. They make me happy when I see them, even if it looks silly in town.

I’m happy to say that for the month of November, there was cash left over in each envelope and every envelope for December has a balance forward deposit into it, even before the budgeted amount was added!

It’s amazing how effective using cash is!! It keeps me accountable to the budget and there is great freedom in knowing there is cash available for our needs.

Just wanted to share this little money success!
