    My grocery budget is one area that I constantly have to work on to keep myself in check. A prepaid card would definitely make me more accountable for my spending!ReplyCancel

  • Kimberly

    Sounds very interesting! I need to budget more, I suck at it though. I will look into this reloadable prepaid visa card!ReplyCancel

  • Sabrina

    I could see this being a great card for teaching people how to work within a budget. Good tool.ReplyCancel
