Description

This pocket ledger notebook is modeled after a checkbook register, only smaller, so it'll fit in the smallest purse or pocket and help you stay on top of your day-to-day spending plan. Use it to help you better manage your spending.

SIZE: 4-3/8" wide (110 mm) by 2-7/8" high (72 mm)

COVER: Choose my cleverly altered dollar bill cover, with George winking and a few other discreet amusing little twists, a light gray cover with a dog, or a pink cover with a cat (blank on back). If you want a different animal and/or color cover, please use the custom request option, or send me a convo to ask if your idea is possible.

This mini ledger book includes a short intro explaining my system, which is simpler and more practical than cash envelopes. (Well, I think so anyway.) The columns are blank, though, so you can tailor it to what works for you.

As I see it, the best money management system isn't about depriving yourself of treats, it's about having an easy and convenient way to avoid spending more than you intend on discretionary things. Or, if you're using your credit card in order to rack up points, this pocket ledger can help you keep track so you don't charge more than you can pay off in a month.

There's a discount for buying two, with no extra postage, because I know how budget conscious you are.

THE DETAILS:
• It measures 4-3/8" wide (110 mm) by 2-7/8" high (72 mm).
• It's hand-sewn across the long edge, and the spine is covered with linen tape.
• It has 48 pages: 23 two-page ledger spreads (landscape orientation), a brief intro at the front and a page for notes at the back. The paper is ivory/natural and a bit heavier than typical ledger paper, so you can write on both sides with a pen or pencil.
• The front flap, which can be used to mark your page, has a quote from Charles Dickens about the happiness of not spending more than you earn.
• The back has a pocket for receipts or whatever, and a quote from a song by Greg Brown: "All the money's gone." (Because a little humor always helps!)
• It has a column for the date or, if needed, check number, a second column for a note, then three columns for categories or whatever you like.

Thanks for looking! Feel free to ask me any questions.

Shipping policies

I ship most items in one to three days, except Sundays and holidays. Custom items may take longer, especially if I'm waiting for replies to my messages. I can speed up my process if you need something in a hurry, so please ask if this is so. If you select Priority Mail (for US addresses), I will assume you are in a hurry and try to get your order out within a day.

I ship via first class mail for most things, and will use Priority Mail for US addresses when selected at checkout or when combined shipping charges cover the cost of Priority Mail. I'll refund excess shipping charges if the actual shipping and handling cost is less, which can sometimes happen when you buy several items (I do try to allow for that in the way that I set the charges).

If you live in Minneapolis/St. Paul and would like to arrange to pick up your order, please use coupon code LOCALPICKUP to waive the shipping charge and I'll contact you to arrange a pick-up time. I can also refund shipping if you didn't use the code. I live in South Minneapolis's Longfellow neighborhood.

SHIPPING TO OUTSIDE THE US: I use first class international mail, which comes with tracking in some countries. I do expect buyers to take care of any local taxes and customs fees on their end, and I do not know what those might be.

FAQs

The text on cards and book plates can be changed; all book plate listings include a custom option for $8 extra. If you want custom printing on cards, please contact me to work out the details.

I welcome requests for custom made journals, too. Please don't hesitate to ask if interested. Allow about 2 weeks plus shipping time.

I do not do custom drawings or pet portraits, sorry! Neither can I alter an existing drawing.
I offer quantity discounts on cards (which are $4 per single card) through existing listings of 5 cards for $15 and 10 cards for $20. Since the 10-card deal is already marked down to half price, that is the same as wholesale and available to all customers. Some other items are available for wholesale (quantity discounts). Please ask if interested.
