Tomorrow I plan on posting our family's list of items we pay for out of our envelope system. I would ask that you please be ready to comment on that article with additions or subtractions from your family.
Some of you, however, may not be familiar with this system. It is very basic and the name basically implies exactly what it is. However, if you are not familiar with this system, please take a moment and read this link from Dave Ramsey's website.
When done properly, this system really works. It may not be a perfect solution, but, if you budget well, it is a great addition to your financial lifestyle.
