MY LIL BUDGET BOOK STORY…
My husband and I made a new year’s resolution to spend less and this little book makes it so easy. I had started out with envelopes labeled with each category but it is embarrassing to pull out an envelope that says "gas" or "entertainment" on it...so I created this cute thing! Despite the name, this little book has the appearance of a clutch and no one will think you are trying to be thrifty. I have also loved filing my coupons and receipts in the Lil’ & Big Budget Books.
