Cash Envie

I wanted to share a few sources for cash envelopes with you all.  The most super easy way is to go to the local dollar store, buy a box of small envelopes, grab a pen, purchase, go home, write on envelopes and stuff with the cash. Done.

Buh….I’m a paperaddict…some of us might want to use stickers, washi and different colored pens…oh my.  Truth is, as with most things in life. you can make this system as simple or as complicated as you want.  Below are some of my favorite sources for setting up a cash envelope system.  From basic blank envelopes to an app created by Dave Ramsey’s group.  Click those links people!

For those who like to make your own, I used this tutorial to make tabs for my wallet – I laminated mine and used basic craft paper.

Or if you are very crafty & own a sticker maker, this is an awesome tutorial (and when you make your set, I’d like one to please!)

Lastly, for those who just don’t do paper and need an app for that, there is EveryDollar from the Dave Ramsey peeps!

For me, I’m sticking with the tabs and savings account.  It’s how I roll.

Operation: Cash Only

Talk about a Mission Impossible!

Yours truly is going cash only in 2017. There are myriad of reasons why but mostly I want to have a better understanding of managing my money, create a safety net for myself and learn to have an understanding of my wants and needs.

I spent some quality time over the last few months reviewing my spending, writing down every penny in and every penny out. This month I will be tackling the review of the last two months spending. This will allow me to know how much is spent on impulse purchases, how much is needed for gas and setting up electronic payments so I can back off from debit card spending.

This years monthly finance posts will be all about my journey to financial freedom.  Mission Plans are not top secret here. Those will be revealed next month…so stay tuned!
