This is a good idea. My husband does the same thing and then we have stuff bounce. Carrie

have envelopes marked and use that envelope only for that purpose. But
I have read that you can use your debit card too. Just mark envelopes
with an amount, put the reciepts in an envelope and subtract from your
total. I don’t think that it would work form me. Just like the
checkbook I would forget to write something down. I don’t see why you
can’t put your check in the bank then take it back out. I would just
check to see if your bank will charge you a fee and you have to think
about the number of checks you will have to write (and buy)
Like I said I am new to this too. For me it is easier to see when the
cash is gone.
