Baby Steps to Money Management


You know I have a big family.  Nieces and nephews out the wazoo.  I think that having a Prepaid Visa MasterCard for a teenager is an awesome idea.  I mean cash is really so 1990′s.  You can pay everywhere with a debit card, even on the web.  I’m already planning for the girls.  I think when they get allowances (which will be when they start doing chores, which could possibly be never) I’ll put part of it on one of those cards.  You can set them up to put a certain amount out of each of your paychecks right on there.  Those cards might even be good for me…If I load a certain amount on when I’m going shopping, and leave all the CREDIT cards at home, I won’t spend more than I’ve planned.  Whaddya think?

    That’s a pretty good idea! (Especially that last part about you shopping, too…I might have to use that idea!)

    Any job is bigger than you thought. A quick trip will take a day. You always spend more money than you thought you would.
