It’s a proven fact that people spend 10%-15% less with cash than they do with plastic such as credit or debit cards. Since the money is not physically leaving your hand, there isn’t a mental or emotional attachment to the amount you’ve just spent. When you change the scenario purchase with cash your more likely to think longer and harder before you agree to buy because once the money is gone, it’s gone for good. If you’d like a better way of keeping control of how much you’re spending or if you’d like an easier way to break down your budget into categories and keep yourself accountable the Broke on Purpose Money Envelopes are the perfect tools for you.
The Broke on Purpose Money Envelopes are made from smooth 24 lb paper and are available in either black or white. They are open-ended and have a straight flap and gum closure. Gold foil is applied to envelopes individually giving each a unique, chic appearance. Money Envelopes are made to withstand normal wear and tear, but they are not waterproof.
