I love Tracie’s website and wanted to share a blog post that really jumped out at me about the cashless cash envelope system — check it out here:

An excerpt:
“While using cash has emotion attached to it, tracking every purchase requires awareness. You are always watching what you spend and where. There are no surprises that you spent $250 on groceries when the budget was $200. You see it happening right in front of you.

The cashless envelope system works because:

  1. You don’t have to worry about carrying or getting cash.
  2. It forces you to track of your spending in real time.
  3. You can see exactly where your money goes and make budget adjustments as needed.

The cashless envelope system forces you to be more responsible for your spending without the hassle of carrying money.
