For at least a month, try the basically-free method of using standard white mailing envelopes (or any of the other cheap DIY cash envelope organizers). Label each envelope with a budget category, stuff them with cash, and put them in your purse. If you stick to this system for a month or more, and find that it is helping you curb your spending and stay within budget, then invest in a special cash envelope wallet. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/48/d8/df/48d8df3cd6dffb76e85c27b748ce2b50.jpg

I originally needed two pairs of work pants. I love cargos since they are loose but fitting, comfy, and have lots of.pockets without the extra added weight. I bought two at Wal-Mart and instantly loved them. Then bought a pair on amazon for about the same price. If you want a pair to wear casually, go for it. They look better than anything old navy has to offer. They are cheaper in price but better in quality as well. Only disappointment is the limited colors. I wanted to buy two pair in navy. One for work one for casual wear. https://i.pinimg.com/280x280_RS/36/7e/36/367e36f0986fc6fc91af4a67c305918f.jpg
The Divide-It cash envelope system wallet is sold on Etsy for only $21.50 (at the time of this article) and comes with six blank tabbed category dividers. You can choose from a huge selection of fabric designs. This shop also sells custom labels for the dividers, spending logs that fit in the wallet, and coin and card pouches that fit inside the wallet; these are old sold separately from the wallet.
I noticed in the catalog that you could fit files in the zipper pouch (it was a lot bigger than the pencil pouch I was picturing), this made me rethink my current “office in a bag” for finances. I placed three files in the zipper pouch: “To File”, “To Handle”, and “Stamps and Envelopes”, then I placed my check book, my budget notebook and my extended budget (which is in a cardboard file) inside the pouch. I am so excited about this set up! It reduced weight and bulk and secures the files while letting them remain upright. It's a huge benefit to me to have all of our budgeting tools with me at all times. I can pay bills, track purchases and adjust the budget in little breaks throughout the day omitting the need for a set time, that I sit down and balance the budget. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/d3/ba/67/d3ba6742554918d319bc56ddefc4cce6--haircolor-my-style.jpg
I actually use this tote as a diaper bag, I have two children in diapers and it really works great for that. Aside from the way I use it, I think it's an over all great bag. A few issues: the elastic pockets on the sides seem to have lost their tension already, I don't put anything large or heavy in them to cause this, also the pocket in the back.. Wish it was larger, I don't really see the point of the zipper in the bottom of the pocket. The only other issue I have is the straps, wish they had some sort of padding on them, they tend to be a little hard on your hands if you're carrying anything heavy. https://i.pinimg.com/236x/49/d7/e7/49d7e7e8b2977be392156ef67a5de1fe--younique-touch-foundation-liquid-foundation.jpg
