  • Awesome, thanks for sharing! A friend and I were just discussing using the cash envelope system. I made my cash envelope system with items from a office store but this is a perfect template to share with her and it will only cost a few cents to print!

  • Jenny says:

    perfect for our newly updated budget and the beginning of our debt snowball!!!

  • Sara says:

    Wish my handwriting was as fancy as that!! These look really great to use! Currently I just use post-it notes, but they tend to fall off and disappear. Thanks!

  • Amanda says:

    Cool. I am going to give these a try!

  • Oh I am so excited about these! We just started a sort of cash envelope system to include with our monthly budgeting, and we are loving it! This is great.

  • Darcie says:

    Thank you so much for sharing this! I love how you share such a wide variety of helpful things….it is SUCH a blessing!!!! 🙂

  • Charity says:

    Thank you so much. I’ve been wanting to make some new envelopes for our cash system!

  • Sherley says:

    Love all the free downloads you put out, thanks!

  • Emilie says:

    Thank you for sharing the link. I love that they have the spot in the back for receipts! I want to try and make them on colored scrapbooking paper and then try laminating before cutting out so I can reuse it week after week. I have many envelopes that are getting ragged: groc wk 1, groc wk 2, household wk 1, hshld wk 2, grocery leftover, hshld leftover.

    I do not need the record part as I keep track of how much I spend in a small notebook with groceries in the front and household in the back. I keep one page per each per week. I keep a running total and then whatever is left after I have grocery shopped and bought household items is saved ( most often it is only a few cents). I fill out the notebook when I am waiting at appointments.

    When the leftover envelopes reach $20 it goes into our saving account.

    Thanks again for the links for great projects and for other blogs.

      I like your “leftover envelope” going into savings. That’s a good idea. Thanks.

    • Sandi Sherlin says:

      I’d love to see a pic of how you do this page per envelope per week thing!!!
      I think that’s what I might need to stay organized!
      Thanks Sandi

    Super cute. Almost makes me want to change. We use a plastic accordian coupon file to store all our chase. I put the receipts within each category and then check everything from there. I keep an envelope for change and then put all our gift cards, etc in the back.

    thanks for sharing!

  • Thank you for sharing this! I have been trying to do things electronically but this would be a good visual for me and a great thing for the kids to learn right now too. I appreciate that you shared this!

    • Brenda says:

      Dionne that is great idea for sharing with the kids. My son was just asking me how he was going to get money for something he wants and if he can see how much he is saving every time he adds money he will have better control at saving. I can’t wait to share this with him.

  • Julie says:

    I tried to print them but when I click on the link takes me to a blank pdf?

  • Kristy says:

    These are wonderful! I used some leftover cardstock type paper we had and they turned out great! @Julie- when you are on the template pdf., hold your cursor at the bottom center of the page and a print option will pop up from adobe- that’s how I printed mine!
    @Emilie- LOVE LOVE LOVE the scrapbook paper and laminate idea!!!

  • Pauline says:

    I like this idea, but it is a shame I can’t use this. I am Canadian and we have too many coins. We have one dollar coins, and two dollar coins.

  • Shari says:

    Thank you for the head start! I have heard about an envelope system. Now I get to try it for myself

  • Charlotte says:

    Thanks for sharing this. I have done this for years and my envelopes are really getting raggedy. I want to share it with my son, also. who is on disability and needs someway to keep his money separated for the month. oit.

  • Luis Medilo says:

    This is great! I’ve downloaded and printed it. It’s so useful for budgeting my expenses.
