Checkbook Covers Many Uses
Please continue to make the Checkbook Covers as they have many uses besides the checkbook. I buy extra to place my receipts in while I shop and when I travel overseas I use them to store my paper money in them. I also use the to store my coupons as well. The uses are endless. These really help to keep my purse organized so please continue to make them to match the purses etc.

I have used the same black coach checkbook for more than 10 years. These are perfect and fun. I don't use many checks but I am trying to manage the account and stay on track so I still write things down like upcoming autopays and online payments. I wish more patterns were available. I found some on ebay to match my new wallets and bags!

I am very disappointed that there is not a checkbook cover in the Fanfare print. I always buy everything to match, and was told you aren't making the checkbook covers. Please reconsider. If I had known that, I probably wouldn't have bought that pattern.
Thanks so much.

I love these checkbook covers. I buy a new one with every purse, to match. I get lots of compliments on them. They do the job and make me smile when I have to pull it out of my purse.

I bought mine in tutti frutti and I love having this on my checks. I can easily see them because of the beautiful color and its so much better to have it personalized with this than a regular check book cover!

Love this cover!
Love this cover. It's so cute and so much better than those cheap plastic ones you get from the bank. It doesn't have a plastic divider for duplicates but you can order one online for cheap! Overall, it's a great cover!! :-)

checkbook cover for present
I just got this yesterday for my birthday. I love it. I know I will use it for years to come. The only thing I would add to this is a pen holder. Just a loop to slide the ink pen in. Love the Midnight Blue.

LOVE the Checkbook Cover as a Cash Wallet
I recently started the cash wallet envelope system and had been looking for a way to keep my cash in different categories. I did have certain criteria for the cash holders.
1. I did not want to have to fold my cash
2. I wanted each category envelope to be separate from the other envelopes so that I could have the flexibility of carrying all of the envelopes at the same time or only one or two as needed
3. I wanted the envelopes to be thin and lightweight, not bulky in any way
5. I wanted the cash to be easy to get to
It's a lot harder than you would think to find something that is pretty, functional, thin and lightweight, sturdy, and holds cash flat without the need to fold it. I decided to give the Checkbook Cover a try and so far I'm so glad that I did.
The Checkbook Cover perfectly meets my criteria. It's pretty, I don't have to fold my cash, sturdy, thin and lightweight. The negative reviews about the lack of structure are actually what really encouraged me to give this cover a try. While I can understand that some might want it to be a little thicker with a harder structure for its intended purpose, I personally love it as is for my needs.
I'm not sure yet which way I like better since I haven't been doing the system long enough to know, but that will come with experience. So far I have used the covers in two ways. I have used one side of the cover to hold my cash and the other side to hold a register for documenting my spending or I have used each side of the cover to hold cash with a single sheet register behind the cash. I think I will probably end up using a designated Checkbook Cover to hold my cash and register for food since that one gets used the most and has the most transactions to keep track of and then use the other Checkbook Covers to hold two categories each.
I have different patterns of the Checkbook Cover to help with quickly recognizing which "envelope" I need. I also have the category name on the register inside.
I have tried the Checkbook Covers in the Clutch Wallet, Turn Lock Wallet, and Zip Around Wallet. All of those wallets will hold a couple of checkbooks at a time, but obviously that would depend on how much other stuff you carry in your wallet. Since using cash, I don't carry a lot of cards. I only carry my driver's license, debit card, insurance cards, and library card so that cuts down some of the bulk.
If you are disappointed with the Checkbook Cover as its intended purpose, maybe give it a try as a cash "envelope" instead. If you don't use the cash envelope system, maybe it would be a good way to keep receipts and other papers organized and kept together in your wallet.

Lots of other uses
I bought this checkbook cover as a bobby pin and elastic holder. I put a flat comb in the inside pockets on one side. On the other side I put about 10 hair elastics in the pocket with a mini-sewing kit. I slide a bunch of bobby pins on the pockets so I have easy access to them. It keeps them all together without me having all my bobby pins go to the bottom of my bag. It weights almost nothing so I dont' mind carrying it around with me and I am never without bobby pins or hairties. My friends always know I have extra hair stuff on me because of this!

Cute Cute Cute!
I LOVE it! So yeah... it doesn't have a place for a pen. Ok so clip it on to the side! If it doens't stay you need a lighter pen with a tighter clip. & It doesn't have anything seperating the duplicates, Ok So flip each check back when you are done with it and just have one check out at a time. Duh! Yeah, it would be a little easier with those two, but its so darn cute, who cares! I have the cutest checkbook and matching everything! :)
