Sitting out here and reading @rachelcruze’s book: Love Your Life Not Theirs. I love the whole premise of the book about finding contentment and also budget tips and money habits.

This morning I reviewed our budget, it was time as I had not updated it since the beginning of the year 🤦🏻‍♀️ and a few minor things have changed. We are going to give the cash envelope system a try and I am pretty excited 💵 Reading what @rachelcruze says about using cash I am looking forward to the guilt free aspect of spending cash from the envelopes because I know it has been allotted for a specific purpose. It somehow seems different than abiding by a figure on our computer spreadsheet and using a card to pay, maybe I’m crazy 🤷🏻‍♀️😂

I would love any suggestions about what to do with coins though (Canadian over here... land of the loonies and toonies 🇨🇦) because I do not like the idea of walking around with multiple change purses 👵🏼 Is there another way to make this work?
