Scouts Are Thrifty

Just because a Scout is thrifty doesn’t mean you never need help monitoring your spending.

Specifically designed for Scouts, the Boy Scouts of America Discover® Prepaid Card is a prepaid, re-loadable card (not a credit card) that is safer and more convenient than carrying cash.

So let’s say you give yourself a budget. Say, $50 per week. You (or a parent) put $50 on the card and you literally can’t go over your budget. Then you replenish it the next week.

    That was good advice. My family had just talked about it for family home evening. I just finished the personal management meritbadge so I know what you are talking about. That is a good idea. I might try it. Go team go.
