I use a combination of Dave Ramsey and Mary Hunt. I keep a specified
amount for my “cash only” for groceries, food out, and gasoline. I
keep specified amounts for car maintenance, clothing, home repairs,
in a seperate checking account. If I were buying
multiple “categories” at Wal-Mart or such, I would write a check for
the car oil and socks. I would check out seperately for the milk,
and pay with cash. I know I do this with Christmas presents so
I have an individual receipt for something if there is a possibility
it would need to be returned and have never had a clerk complain.
Because my “cash only” categories are so few, I never really have a
problem with jostling the cash back and forth. If you try to make it
a complicated, convoluted program it will be too frustrating and your
wife will probably hate it and fight you at every turn, keep it
That is my 5 cents worth! HTH
