If you are using the “envelope system” for your budgeting, these box envelopes will really help a lot! I have been using them and it works great to keep my budget categories separate and organized. I kinda do my own version of the envelope system. Each person has different needs and what works for some won’t always work for others, but what I have learned is that it’s really important to stick to a budget method that works for you.

With the envelope system, what you do is separate your paychecks into categories, and assign a definite amount of money to each. That way you will always know that the most important things, like rent, food, utilities, etc.. there will always be enough money for them.

However, I do a simpler version of it. I don’t use envelopes for every category, but I do use them to save money for specific things. For example, I keep an envelope for “Car Repair”, so with each paycheck, we put some money apart for that specific purpose as a saving. This have really helped us each month!

If you are not interested in using them for budgeting, you could also use them for storing receipts or coupons, small pictures, pieces of paper that you have lying around but can’t throw away, or anything that fits inside!

Flat envelopes also work, but I have found that box envelopes help keep everything more organized and pretty, so I created this template so that you can also make your own box envelopes.

They are the perfect size for dollars, but you could also use them for anything else you want to. They also have a little flap that helps them stay close.

You can print them in any 8.5″ x 11″ letter sized paper. You could print one in cardstock and use that one as a guide to make all the envelopes you want. Or you could print them directly on the paper that you want to use for your box envelopes.

    I love the box idea but the link does not open up to fit on letter size paper. It opens as a jigpeg (small). Can you create PDF file of this.
    Thanks

    I also like the idea but there is no such size of envelopes in the market. So the envelopes should also be customized.
