I’ve got a little different Molly’s Money post for you guys today!
Many of you have probably heard me talk about the “cash envelope” system of budgeting. It’s not a new phenomenon. Dave Ramsey is the guy who made it famous. Basically, in short, you budget down to the last dime, you take everything out of your paycheck in CASH, and you divide it up into sections.
This much cash for groceries… this much cash for gas… etc. etc. etc. You then put that cash in designated envelopes and BOOM… you have your cash envelope system. You spend what’s in that envelope and once it’s gone for the month, it’s gone.
It’s a GREAT, strict way to REALLY budget and hold yourself accountable to your spending!
There are also other systems similar to the envelope system with regards to couponing! Oh all you crazy couponers! 🙂 🙂
Anyway. A few years ago, the AMAZINGLY talented Becky and her daughter Sarah over at Miss Money Bags and their family switched over to the cash envelope system for THEIR budgeting. Sarah, being the crafty visionary that she is, designed a gorgeous, handmade wallet with cash envelopes BUILT IN!!
It’s a cash envelope wallet!
I have actually been on the hunt for a cash envelope system wallet for awhile but all the ones I found online were, well… not cute. I was so excited when Becky wanted to team up with me on a review and giveaway of one of her wallets because it was literally the answer to what I’d been looking for!
When it came in the mail, I was STUNNED at how gorgeous it is. It’s really beautiful. It’s extremely well made. Every detail is so well thought out!
This particular wallet has six envelopes and even has little canvas labels for you to label each envelope with its corresponding category! So, you can have an envelope for grocery money, maybe one for coupons, another one for “fun” money, etc. etc. Whatever you decide! It also has a place to hold IDs, cards, etc.
There’s a zipper section for your change and valuables! It even fits your phone.
There are two pockets on either size that fit a checkbook or other receipts, coupons, cash, etc. And a pen holder!
I can’t even begin to tell you guys how much I love it and how beautiful it is. Every time I pull my wallet out in a store, SOMEONE asks me about it! If you’re looking to try the cash envelope system, this is a GREAT way to get started in STYLE! 🙂 Or, if you’re just a super organized, OCD person like me… this wallet is for you!
