Make your own money and bill organizer

Do you find setting aside the household budget such a chore? Do you feel disorganized when it comes to paying the bills? Here’ a simple way to put a little order and fun to the unpleasant task of budgeting.  I promise you it won’t cost you a thing!

All you’ll need are:
•    Several pieces of used mail envelopes
•    Glue or double-sided tape
•    Board paper or any sturdy paper material such as magazine covers, old calendars, posters, etc.

Step 1: Cut the flaps off the envelopes.

Step 2: Arrange envelopes over the other and glue or tape together.

Envelopes all stacked up.

Step 3: Fold a piece of board paper in such a way that it encloses the envelopes inside.
The envelopes are covered by the board paper.

Step 4: Glue or tape onto the envelopes.
The envelopes now create little pockets, waiting to be filled.

Step 5: Make little labeling tabs by folding in half small pieces of blank paper and attaching them with glue to the individual envelopes.
You can now segregate and label each section.

The finished product. Simple, yet oh-so functional.
