Additionally, set up your savings, checking and the sub_savings accounts to have internet_access via your home computer, free of charge. This will allow you the convenience of budgeting and bill paying from the comfort of your home. If you are uncomfortable using internet_access for banking purposes, there are just a couple things to be aware of and you will be fine. First, only use a reputable bank or credit union. They have the best security in place for all of your data access requirements. Follow their password guidelines and change your password regularly. In my book, I dedicate an entire chapter to Virtual Envelopes and how to set up your sub_accounts.
With Virtual Envelopes your money is not only safe but you can access your accounts any time from the convenience of your computer at home. You will be able to see the account and sub_account balances for each of the budget categories. You will also be able to move money from one budget category to another when necessary and also move money into your checking account when it's time to pay bills. What could be better? Virtual Envelopes are based on the proven fundamental budgeting technique of Cash Envelopes, but thanks to modern technology can now provide the ultimate safe, convenient, and flexible solution for your monthly money management.
