Manage Your Money And Raise Breast Cancer Awareness
There’s an age-old concept for budgeting called “Envelope budgeting”. The idea is simple. Divide up the cash you have on hand into envelopes with the expense category on it and you only get to spend what is in the envelope. When the envelope is empty you can’t spend any more in that category, and if there is some left over at the end of the month you either add it to a savings account or roll it over for use the following month.
Kids today have a hard time understanding where money comes from. I overheard a child just the other day in a department store saying “Don’t worry if you don’t have enough money Mom, we can go to the grocery store and get more from the checkout.” This is a common theme and why many kids don’t understand budgets even exist.
When teaching kids the value of money, a Prepaid Visa like a PayPower card can be hugely helpful. Jimmy needs a new pair of sneakers for basketball? Give him a card for an agreed upon amount and let him make his own shopping decision.
Give the kids their allowance monthly in a form of a gift card. They only spend what they have and they learn how to weigh the value of what they buy. With PayPower you only spend what you have, so there are no overdraft fees or interest charges. Your card can be used everywhere Visa debit cards are accepted, including online or over the phone. Plus it is easy to reload!
Safer than cash
The funds on your card account are protected from unauthorized use by the Visa Zero Liability policy if your card is lost or stolen. The funds in your card account will be FDIC insured through the card Issuer, provided your card is registered.
