Thursday my family started using the cash envelope system.  When I went to the bank on Thursday morning to get our cash, I mentioned to the cashier what we were doing. She gave me several bank envelopes to use which I thought was very nice.

I have never been able to stick to a budget but I also have never been this determined.  We have cash categories for gas, food, misc., and personal spending (very minimal). The kids have joined us and have their categories for personal spending and clothing allowances (Sadly, we have done little up to this point to teach them much about money management. I hope better late than never will apply here.)
