Starting the Envelope System

Hey everyone. This topic was easier to do a video on. Thanks for your support and patience.

Please share your thoughts! Many blessings!


  1. Chrissy, I've never used the envelop system but I think it's a great idea! My mother used a very similar system and it did work well for her. She had different coin purses with wads of cash in them that she allotted to different types of purchases. Again, love the videos. Maybe I'll be brave and try one in the new year.

  2. I don't mind the videos. I completely understand about time. Honestly, instead of watching your video I should be working on school plans. Ha!

    Anyway, I have used the envelope system. The one thing I hated about it was having cash for gas. I like the convenience of pay at the pump. Especially if the weather isn't good or if I have a van full of kids. The solution was for Chuck to put the gas money on a gift card. That way I could still pay at the pump.

    You are encouraging me to get my act together.

    1. Wendi,

      I totally understand about the gas. Thisnwas one area I don't like. I love the idea of a gift card!!!!

  3. I like the videos. It’s kind of like a visit with a sweet friend.
    I used to do the envelope method and it worked great for us. Then our income increased and so did our spending and we have just been spending too much,
    I’m working on a list and plan to start back on envelopes with our next pay which is next week.
    I didn’t use too many categories- my husband and I both got spending cash, groceries which was everything grocery store related including household and health products, gifts, fun and gas.
    I’m rooting for you!

  4. I have used the envelope method. It does work great, we need to get back to it. I am loving your videos!

  5. I think your videos are fabulous, dear Chrissy :)

    As for the envelopes, I have often thought about using it, but simply haven't. I have heard that it works great.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you! Hugs!

  6. I do it for my daughter for school expenses. One is for the lunch lady. One is for her Thursday after school viola lesson. I also give her extra lunch money in case some kids don’t have it, because the lunch ladies are shame happy.

  7. We have done that too and it does really help to rein in the spending. ;) Great video!
