It keeps me in budget and I can't overspend if I do not have it. Right?
Well, how I get around the ordering online thing, is I get a pre-paid Visa gift card each month loaded with what I have budgeted. Both Hubby and I have agreed on that amount and that is what I have.
Maybe that might be something you can consider to keep your banking and personal info private.
You know, Val, I thought of that, but I don't know much about them. Do you have to register them? I wish it were just as simple as buying a card and using the number to purchase something, but I have a feeling there is more to it...am I right?
