THe original Envelope System was made by Larry Burkett, which is based on percentages,not on actual dollar amounts. So you would take your average income and break it down into what percentage needs to go into certain envelopes, then if your paycheck varies, you'd still just use the same percentages. We did that system for a couple years with great success while DH's paycheck was very unpredictable.
