Budgeting Made Simple: The Envelope System [with Free Printables]

Finding the time and energy to budget can be hard sometimes, but budgeting doesn’t have to be stressful if you have the right system in place. One way to easily budget and save money at the end of the month is to use the envelope budgeting system

What is the Envelope Budgeting System?

The envelope budgeting money management technique uses envelopes to keep track of how much money you can spend for different categories each month.

This is a traditional method used by the previous generations, and it can be extremely effective especially if you are a person who works better with something tangible in front of you. 

The envelope budgeting system is a cash based system, that doesn’t require cards or using bank accounts. 

Here is how to use the Envelope Budgeting System: 

  1. Create categories and come up with a budget

For expenses you have, group them into categories and label the envelopes accordingly. Examples of categories are bills, rent, groceries and other. Then allocate a reasonable monthly budget for each category so you have a limit of what you can spend every month. 

   2. Add Cash to Envelopes

Once your budget is set for each category, cash out the necessary amount and place them inside each envelope accordingly. 

   3. Spend Wisely

When paying for your groceries, or bills, take the cash out of the respective envelope and use it to pay, and save the receipt inside for better tracking. 

Any money left you can add it to the next month’s envelope or put it in your savings account, or a savings envelope.

Are you ready to start budgeting? With these free printables from Mint below, all you have to do is cut, fold and glue according to the instructions and start budgeting!

4 Steps to Camp on the Beach with Kids & Printable Activities

Imagine rolling over to see sunny skies, fluffy clouds, and an ocean breeze from the side of your bed. Beach camping is a one-of-a-kind overnight experience and one that can teach your kids a thing or two about the seaside. Take your kids out for a successful beach camping vacation following these four tips for success. 

Pick a Location

You’ve got two coasts completely different coasts to pitch a tent at, now all you need to do is pick your favorite. 

  • West Coast: West coast may be the best coast with its sprawling oceans. Try camping in Bodega Bay, California—a dog-friendly environment that everyone knows and loves.
  • East Coast: Try the undiscovered camping areas on the Florida Panhandle. You’ll love the warm waters along the Gulf of Mexico. 

Create a Packing List

Packing for a beach camping retreat requires some extra foresight. Make sure you include the following beach-specific items in your packing list before you head out to camp at the seaside.

  • Life jackets
  • Rainfly or tarp
  • Sunscreen
  • Beach Umbrella

Plan Activities

We get it, for mom and dad, watching the waves, content in beach chairs is probably enough to schedule a beach camping trip. Unfortunately, our little ones typically need more excitement than soaking up the sun all day. Bring some sand castle toys, lawn games, and floaties to keep the kids entertained.
