It’s Week #2 in the Pantry Challenge! Here’s the list for this week…
I LOVE it when coupons in the paper match up the SAME week as the sale! See evidence above…$.30 frozen veggies! Yeah!
Also, since we are switching over to cash, I’d thought about buying a cash envelope system…but why buy when you can print and cut your own for free!
Kelleigh is offering the. most. adorable. envelope. system. templates. FREE!!!
I headed straight for my scrapbooking papers…ended up choosing the brightly colored cardstock palette for my envelopes!
Not nearly as adorable as Kelleigh’s, but these envelopes of mine won’t get lost in a snowstorm! I’ve got 4 for groceries, 1 for gas, 1 for miscellaneous/kids clothes/stamps/etc. that fit perfectly into my wallet.
After I shop, I slip the receipt into the envelope. Then at the end of the month during our last Sunday Night Meeting of the month, we can quickly total up how much was spent, stash away any extra and then decide how much to pull for the next month. It’s a system that works, keeps me accountable with my shopping, and is easy to track!
Thanks Kelleigh for the super-FAB envelopes!!!
