Even though we had a budget and always seemed to stay within that budget we never had extra money. We still stressed out about those unexpected things that always come up (if you find a way to avoid them please let me know!).
Over a couple months every where I turned someone was talking about the cash/envelope budget system. I began to think God was trying to get my attention about something. So as some of you may remember in December of last year I decided to give it a try. EUREKA!
I can honestly not say enough good things about this system. I think it has to be tweaked just a bit for each family until you get it right. But there is nothing more than I love then to sit down at the end of the month and count up all the 'extra/left over' money we have. And God has been so good to us during this time. He has given me such a desire to make this work that I am able to resist all those little purchases that truly do add up over time.
Today I am just thankful that God brought this system into my life and more than numerous occasions encouraged me to make it a success. If anyone would like more information - please leave a comment below or message me at andtheycallherblessed (at) gmail (dot) com
