Spendvelope Giveaway, Part 2

I'm giving away six full sets of  spendvelope cash envelopes; three here as a blog giveaway and three as a  youtube video giveaway.   You may enter daily for both giveaways if you wish.  Comments to this post will count towards this set of three and comments to the youtube video will be for those three.   

They are made from nice, heavy card stock (which makes them more durable then  the regular postal envelopes I tried initially).  The envelope sets include twelve spendvelopes in ten different colors ( two are white) and that makes it very easy to distinguish one envelope category from another.

The above picture is a spendvelope under a sheet of personal sized Filofax paper, as you can see they are almost identical. I've kept mine in personal and A5 Filofaxes, the regular size Midori traveler's notebook (under the elastic), in a small plastic box, and currently in a Vera Bradley Clutch wallet.

There isn't a closure  but the flap is long and I've found them secure without an additional closure.   Here you can see the Filofax paper poking out the bottom.  If I decided to punch these I will need to cut the bottom flap edge off to keep the rings free.    

If you feel you need to seal them I've always thought repositionable  tape would work, as would Velcro dots, or an elastic band.    
Spendvelopes are a great size for carrying coupons and receipts, as well as all the little tabs and clips and notes we carry in our Filofax, so if you feel you don't need twelve money categories they won't go to waste.

Under the flap is a  grid similar to a check register.  This was something I wanted when I was using regular envelopes.  When I wanted to know what I had, I had to count everything.

Spendvelopes can be purchased directly though their Amazon Store but there is also a website with information on how to get started simply (simple is always the best way to get into anything!) and  the owner's success story.

For me these are pretty much perfect!    If I could change one thing it would be the motivation quotes on the back.   I wish it was just blank or with lines.   I've also used them for saving money for a particular reason (saving up to buy a purse) and I would have liked to be able to write my own motivation on the back.  And add a picture.  

That's a pretty picayune, I know.  But I do love my creativity space on all things :)

I'm nutty about paper blanks, especially those with William Morris decoration on the covers, in fact anything to do with the feel of new paper. :0)

Thanks for the chance to win this system of keeping track of $$ spent. I've been on two vacations this summer and it's time to reign in the bucks to get ready for Christmas. I don't want to use credit cards.
Thanks for your great posts on the Filofax.

I'm admiring the colors today. I love how bright they are. I wonder how many I could succesfully stuff in the binder with my normal planning inserts.
