So, like just about everyone else looking to finally figure something out, she went to YouTube, where she discovered "cash stuffing," a money management strategy that changed her life. "I found cash budgeting and I literally stuck to it," Taylor says. "I would only spend what I had in cash."
When Taylor began cash stuffing, she operated on a zero-based budget, which is the most common option among cash stuffers, she says. "That means you start your budget with whatever your paycheck number is, and you give every dollar a place to go, down to zero."
Once she has a plan in place for the month, she divvies up her money in the form of physical cash. "I put aside money for bills in envelopes. I put money aside for variable expenses, which is weekly spending," she says. "Then you also put money aside for 'sinking funds,' which are like little short-term or long-term savings accounts." Those can include an emergency fund, money for car maintenance or money earmarked for the holidays.
What's left over goes toward the future, either paying down debt or building up long-term savings. Taylor and her followers "stuff" the appropriate proportion of cash inside individual envelopes, or in labeled binders or cash wallets.
It didn't take long for Taylor to revamp her money habits. A few months in, after diligently tracking where all her money was going, she had saved $1,000. It was the first time in her life she had access to that much cash.
Second, she realized there was a market for people like her who found cash stuffing attractive but found plain, old envelopes drab. "I looked around, and I couldn't find a bunch of shops that were selling the items you needed to cash stuff," she says.
In spring of 2021, Taylor used her $1,200 stimulus check to form Baddies and Budgets, buying a Shopify account, shipping supplies, material for cash-stuffing wallets and a Cricut machine to print labels for envelopes and wallet covers.
Even with the business on track to pull in more than $1 million this year, Taylor pays herself a salary of just $1,200 a week and reinvests heavily in the business. She still sorts out her finances in cash each week, setting aside some for her expenses and some toward retirement accounts and other savings challenges.

Cash transfers have been increasingly adopted by countries worldwide as central elements of their social protection and poverty reduction strategies. A growing number of studies provide rigorous evidence on the impact of cash transfers, and the role of specific cash transfer design and implementation features in shaping outcomes.
This rigorous review of the impact of cash transfers is the largest and most comprehensive review of its kind to date. It consolidates and assesses the body of evidence from 2000 to 2015, covering low- and middle-income countries worldwide, to provide policy-makers, practitioners and researchers with a single resource on the most rigorous and up-to-date evidence available.
This report on the impact of cash transfers assesses and synthesises evidence from 15 years of studies, covering 30 low- and middle-income countries, to provide policy-makers, practitioners and researchers with a single resource on the most rigorous and up-to-date evidence available.
Focusing on non-contributory monetary transfers, including conditional and unconditional cash transfers, social pensions and enterprise grants, the review addresses three overarching research questions:
This briefing paper summarises the findings of a rigorous literature review of the evidence on the impacts of cash transfers on individuals and households, covering literature spanning 15 years (2000-2015) and low- and middle-income countries worldwide.
It provides an overview of the findings by outcome (monetary poverty, education, health and nutrition, savings, investment and production, employment, empowerment) and discusses the role of variations in cash transfer design and implementation details.
