I am inspired by this post to get back into being better with our budget. It seems like we do really well for a while and then not so well for an even longer while.

We currently use MyEnvelopes but it hasn't been working for us lately. Maybe it is because we haven't been using it lately. Who knows. Either way I am wondering if any of you have a great way to keep track of your expenses or any ideas for actually sticking to a budget.

We always feel so much better when we are on the right track financially and understandably we argue less. That's a big deal for me. I like to live harmoniously with my hubby. We're better that way.

  1. I read Money Saving Mom's post. Interesting! You know we use Mvelopes, but I like Money Saving Mom's idea to just use something like Mvelopes for the actual bills and maybe to try the cash envelopes for everything else. I wonder if she actually carries those envelopes in her purse all the time. Also, I wonder how it works when both her and her husband are needing cash. They'd have to separate the cash and it just sounds like it could be confusing,but worth a try.I've always wanted to try this method!
