Hello Group! I hope everyone had a great Spring Break!
I wanted to expand on Mandy's blog from last week about debit cards. Some of us might not have a checking account or debit card, so we probably don't have to think about debit cards - Yet. But there other things we can use in place of debit cards, especially if our parents want to help us keep track of our spending. Right now at FORUM we have Youth Cards. Youth Cards are kinda like gift cards because they are prepaid cards we use for purchases, but they are reloadable unlike gift cards. We fund the cards with money from our account, and then use the Youth Card until the funds are gone. Then we can do that all over again. It is a great way to keep track of our spending, and we don't have to worry about spending money we don't have. Using the Youth Card is a great way to stay on budget. I know I get myself in trouble by not staying within my budget
What do you think about our Youth Cards? Do you think it would be something you or your friends would use?
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
