Envelope System to Save Money

It is unexpected that we find solutions and amazing people. Today, I was having lunch in my place, when engaged in a conversation about organization with Camila, which have lunch at the same place now and then. Without waiting for an answer, my mom asked “Hey, you don’t have any organization tip to share?” and I replied “Camila! Wait a minute “. She opened the bag, pulled out a folding folder, by the way – and one of the dividers removed five colorful envelop. “That’s how I organize my money”.

I was very surprised, not only with the news itself, but with the naturalness with which she presented the envelopes. For Camila, it seemed to be organized was the most natural thing in the world. I turned a fan!

Her recipe is as follows: five envelopes of different colors, one for each category. The categories used are:

  • Tithing
  • Accounts
  • Save
  • Spend
  • Week

The categories are completely customizable, so you can choose the one that best works for you.

She confesses that an envelope is not enough to do some shopping, but that, in general, works well. So simple and functional, isn’t it? I was delighted with the whim of adhesives, save is much easier with a system that is so good to use.
