This is not a blog you will read about my expensive taste. This is a blog where I will tell you frugal ways to get by without coming across as cheap. I have frugal swagger. I wear $5 dresses but I use coupons and sales to buy them new. My kids might look like I spend a lot on their clothes but I buy timeless items seasons ahead when they are on rock bottom clearance. If I see black boots, or brown leggings or white tee shirts, I buy them, in different sizes.
I had an issue recently with autopay. A company kept trying to take money out of my account. I filled a greivance with the bank and was not satisfied with the outcome, so I did something crazy…I cancelled my bank account. I did love direct deposit and I am a debit card girl. I carry no cash, ever.
So I quickly realized this rash decision may not have been the best one but was not ready to go back to a bank. This is when I goggled alternative check cashing. I live in an urban area and was not willing to go to a corner store check cashing. Then I saw this:
Basically you can cash your paycheck at Walmart for $3 if it is less than $1000. You can either get cash or they will waive the fee to give you a prepaid Walmart Money Card. You can then get direct deposit to the card, or reload it weekly. I like that is can be used as a debit card. I also go to Walmart for other things.
