Classy with Cash

Clark and I, along with 5 other couples are getting ready for our first of thirteen installments of Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University starting tonight! Why? As full time parents, church planters, and fundraisers, we figured we needed something else to do. No really, is there ever a convenient time to get your financial house in order? Instead of pulling out my workbook today {which is still wrapped up in the box} what did I do today? Peruse cash wallets on Etsy and online DIY tutorials for customized cash envelopes.

I love this fabric wallet/ cash envelope system by Tresmarias’ Etsy shop.

I’m pretty sure there isn’t a Michael Miller fabric-inspired set of cash envelopes in our course materials. So, I will just have to make my own. For crying out loud, if I am going to sit around and talk about debt snowballs and mutual funds for the next 13 weeks, I darn well better do it in style.

I hope you have a happy {and fiscally responsible} week!

    Oh My Goodness! Yea! We did FPU a while ago and I have been desiring to use the cash envelope system, but truth be told, was NOT ENTHUSED about the ho-hum nature of the paper envelopes and the little leather one that we received at the end of our class. I have a sewing machine but have yet to successfully create something useable so I am ordering my cash wallet… now!!! Lady Lullabuy strikes again… thanks, chica!

    I would do financial peace just for that sweet wallet.

    I so need this! We started FPU in March and I’ve stuck to wads of cash paper clipped together to avoid that clunky brown leather one. Thanks for sharing! Good luck with Dave. 🙂

      And as you will soon see… I’m still working on the “live like no one else part”… but darn that wallet! I want it sooo bad! 😉

    Now I have an organized way to, once again, implement this budgeting system without all the obstacles. An envelope system wallet is made to be used with the cash envelope system of budgeting. Here are four great envelope system wallets I have identified.
