Envelope System

This Sparked Me!

Every month we set aside cash for groceries, entertainment, and basic expenses, all in seperate envelopes. We budget so that we can ONLY spend each month what is in those envelopes for those expenses. When we break a dollar, the change goes into a jar. At the end of the month, any bills leftover and all the change in the jar goes into savings!
