Cash, not my friend

I hate the cash envelope system. If I have a pile of cash I feel like I can spend it. But it makes so much sense and it's SOOOO easy to over spend with the debit card. Grrr.

I REALLY want to try and come as close to being on budget as possible this week. I've been progressively getting closer each week but ever since my June/ July downfall I've been struggling to get back in the game. I've only two days left in the budget this week and it looks like I might actually make it. I withdrew the remainder of the budgeted spending today and the plan is to cash envelope the next two days.

Yay, cash envelope... here goes.

  1. I'm going to start a cash envelope I reckon. The only thing is that I'd probably end up carrying the cash with me anyway to pick things up from the supermarket after work!

    How many categories of envelope do you have? I'm thinking of having; Fuel, Food, Christmas gifts.
