It's been working great for us, and has really gotten our budget on track.
The only problem........
How do carry all that darn cash and keep it organized!
I had done the multiple paper envelopes in my purse bit.
But that just got messy.
The envelopes got tattered, and it just didn't work.
Then, I moved to one of these accordion files.
But the change would slip through the cracks.
So...I looked around online for a solution.
There are several DIY ideas out there.
(feel free to google)
But this is what I came up with....
It is very loosely based on this tutorial here.
It has 6 Velcro closure envelopes.
Each envelope has a stiff felt "tag" on the side, to label each category.
These are our cash categories for our budget:
-Grocery (this is food, pets and household items combined)
-Giving (tithe, presents, misc. giving)
So....I have a bonus envelope which contains my check book and Costco card.
I absolutely love this little wallet.
It is so much cuter, and more practical then any of my other solutions.
And this cash system is so, so good.
I highly recommend it to any one!
