Envelope budgeting in style


If you haven’t heard of envelope budgeting let me tell you… It’s the fail proof way of knowing where every dollar goes and never wasting a penny. The system is to have different envelopes for your expenses: gas, grocery, entertainment, fast food, or whatever your personal expenses are and then allocate a certain amount for each category and put that amount in each envelope. For example, gas=$300, grocery =$400, fast food=$100, ect. And these are monthly expenses. I use one of those according folders so I don’t have a bunch of envelopes floating around.
Here is my envelope… I got creative:).
