    Loved your household budgeting series! I didn’t actually start my binder yet, but will be heading to the nearest big city to pick up my supplies!

  8. Haylee says:

    Ahh! I totally can’t figure out how to pin one of the pictures to my pinterest. ):

  9. Natalie Campbell says:

    Can this be open to Canadian residents if we have a US address???

  10. Kristine Adams says:

    Thank you so much for this series. Also, thanks for keeping it simple! I had done pretty good for awhile with a cash budget but I let it get away from me and we are spending more on credit card than we should. This should help alot! Thanks again.

  11. Susan says:

    It’s awesome that you are offering this to help everyone out. Bless you

  12. Kelly Irving says:

    Love Dave…..he helped to get my niece and her husband out of debt and closer to their faith. Would love to win for my daughter who is just out of college and beginning her financial journey!

  13. Carol S says:

    My husband and I are starting the envelope system. It would be awesome to win in this giveaway!!! Love your blog!

  14. Tammy says:

    Starting this month love the giveaways. Thanks again

  15. I apologize if you tried to use the ABFOL coupon code for free shipping from my shop and it didn’t work. It needs to be LEMONS instead. Toni will change it on the blog later today when she’s home, but it is active now. So sorry about any confusion!

    • Laura says:

      Bummer I already ordered my envelope system:( I am sure it will be worth the shipping and more:-)

  16. Jodi says:

    Thanks so much for this budget series. It will really help our family right now.

  17. Cindy E. says:

    I would LOVE to win any of this! I am assembling my budget binder now and I’m so excited to get our finances on track! Thank you for the valuable information you provide on the blog!

  18. Karen M. says:

    Thank you for introducing me to your blog by promoting Dave Ramsey, one of my all time favorite people with a proven plan.

  19. Filomena says:

    It’s such a pity I can’t enter! (I live in Portugal) Toni, next time you must let us participate as well… it’s so difficult to get Dave’s books and workbooks and CDs here… And we certainly need the “education”, as we are facing a major economic challenge in our country.

    • Unfortunately, it’s just about impossible for bloggers to do this, because we would have to post and comply with the sweepstakes laws & regulations of every single country whose residents enter the giveaway. It’s a bummer, but there’s really no manageable way around it. πŸ™

  20. Tracy Jennings says:

    Thanks! Hope I win πŸ™‚

  21. Charlene Taylor says:

    Thank you for this opportunity

  22. Samantha Pellegrino says:

  23. Samantha Pellegrino says:

    PS…I live in Canada but have access to a US address too. πŸ™‚ Having said that, if you prefer to keep it in the States, totally respect that.

  24. Cassie says:

    I do not use twitter. Does this eliminate me from the contest? I use facebook.

  25. Sue Braithwaite says:

    Thank you!

  32. Joni says:

    I have piles of papers and bills in my house (very neat piles, mind you), but it is not working any longer… ignore one pile too long and you miss a due date. Yikes! We need an organized approach to pay bills on time and get on track with financial goals. I love your ideas and materials! Would use it all and make the change (haha) we want to see!
