I thought I'd make a quick post here about my cash envelope system that we also started this month.
This month I'm using just regular 'ole mailing envelopes, regular size, not business sized.
But the other day while at Wal-mart, I purchased a 25 count box of these:
(This is just to use as reference to give you an idea of the ones that I bought).
I figured these would be much sturdier, plus I can re-use them for several months because I have alot more room for writing on the fronts than just a regular sized envelope.
Here is the video that I talked about a few weeks ago that gave me a really good overview of a simple, cash envelope system:

We use cash for only part of our budget categories:
~prepaid calling cards
All of our other categories are left in our checking account to be paid either by check or debit card.
I thought this might come in handy for someone else.
