I've had a few friends ask me about my "cash only" Christmas budget system so here it is.
1. Purchase a coupon holder with several pockets. I purchased mine at Target for about $6. It is like an expandable.
2. Label each pocket with the categories that you budget for. As you can see above, a few of my categories are: cards/postage, tree, ornaments, decorations, kids, parents, etc.
3. Put budgeted cash in each pocket
You are ready to get your shopping on!!!!
I love this handy little expandable because it is small enough to carry in my purse, and it is a really easy way to save all of your holiday receipts!!! Mine even has a small pocket in the front that holds things like a pen and post it notes.
It is a holiday must have for me!!!!
