Budget Organizer Notebook - open notebook showing budget envelopesThis handy pocket notebook is very useful to moms who are on a really tight budget. As a mom, I try my best to organize my budget and set aside funds for the family's necessities. My purpose in making this organizer is to keep budgeted funds intact and to avoid spending them on extra unnecessary things.



  • scissors
  • scratch envelopes
  • printed labels
  • glue
  • mini notebook with garter
Budget Organizer Notebook - supplies


  1. I have here long brown mailing envelopes which I reconstructed into mini envelopes so that I don't have to buy the money envelopes in the store. It would be an additional cost for me. So I just cut each into three and glue the open sides leaving only one opening.
  2. Budget Organizer Notebook - fold envelope into three sections
    Budget Organizer Notebook - cut apart
    Budget Organizer Notebook - glue so only one side is open
    Budget Organizer Notebook - opening
  3. Make a neat fold on the mini envelope's opening by cutting its two sides in 1 inch. Fold the front cut inside and secure with glue. Then trim the other side and fold forward for the seal flap.
  4. Budget Organizer Notebook - cut down the side of envelop pocket about 1 inch
    Budget Organizer Notebook - fold to inside of pouch
    Budget Organizer Notebook - folded
    Budget Organizer Notebook - trim other side to make seal flap

  5. Stick a label in each of the mini envelopes.
  6. Budget Organizer Notebook - add a seal to each envelope
  7. Choose a handy notebook with garter lock. Stick one envelope in each page on the back portion. The front pages will be used for writing the breakdown of your expenses.
  8. Budget Organizer Notebook - notebook with elastic band strap
    Budget Organizer Notebook - back section to use for envelopes
    Budget Organizer Notebook - glue one envelope to each back page
    Budget Organizer Notebook - side view of notebook with envelopes inside
  9. Insert your current billing or receipts along with the corresponding amount you are going to pay for each. It's pocket sized so you don't have to pull out your bulky wallet whenever you need to pay your monthly bills.
  10. Budget Organizer Notebook - place bills, receipts, and cash to pay into each envelope
