Money Bags… er eh… Envelopes

Have you ever heard of Dave Ramsey?  No.  Well he’s so cool.  He is a financial guru and believes in living debt fee and on a real budget.  My husband and I really enjoy his teachings.  We have not always followed them, because um, we are human. LOL.  But we try.  Recently I’ve wanted to get back into the habit of some of his ideas.  One of his ideas is having envelopes (Dave’s Envelope System) that are marked with Food, Gas, Household Items, Clothes.  You put your money in those envelopes each month and then you use that money through the month.  When the money is gone it’s gone.  This way you aren’t using your debit card for stuff.  You apparently spend more when you do that.  

I wanted cute envelopes for a our money.  So I made these up.  Then I thought maybe you’d want a kit.  So I am selling kits including the Project Life by Stampin’ UP! pen.  You can get the kit for $7 including shipping.

Kit includes:
– Five 3-1/4″ x 12″ strips of Back to Black Paper, pre scored.
– 10 Large Whisper White Oval Punches
– One Project Life by Stampin’ UP! Pen
**use any of your own favorite color markers to brighten up your paper.**

Watch the video here to learn how to put the envelopes together.

    I need to read/get one of his books to undestand the whole idea his “selling”… I saw you following him on FB and I’m doing it too. I have to tell you I’m learning so many good things from you and your blog. Thanks Wendy for sharing 🙂
