Once you start using a prepaid credit card instead of a traditional card, youll already be well on your way to saving more and improving your finances. There are many benefits youll receive from a prepaid card, but in many cases, you can maximize the potential of these rewards by paying attention to special offers from your card. The Green Dot card offers numerous additional benefits to cardholders that are easy to get with just a little effort. Check out these six extra perks you could receive for no additional cost. 1. Get Monthly Fees Waived Though its easy to get your activation fee waived by purchasing your card online, you can also have the monthly fee of $4.95 waived by making enough purchases. You wont have to pay the monthly fee if you spend at least $1000 or make more than 30 purchases on your Green Dot card in a single month. Its easy to reach this threshold when you use your card for all of your expenses. Pay your utility, cable and phone bills with the card and youll make great progress toward the minimum $1000 purchase.
Teapots, mugs, plates covered in spots and dots are extremely stylish and popular at the moment. Emma Bridgewater has her Polka Dot design and visit any household section of department stores you will see lots of spotty and dotty pottery designs. But did you know there are several very simple ways suitable for all ages and abilities to of paint your own pottery with a dotty or spotty design. Finger print spots Your fingers make some of the best dots on pottery and ceramics, plus it is something even the youngest child with a bit of help can do. The only thing you need to do before starting your finger print dots is to make sure is that your fingers are clean and free of any grease. When you change colours make sure you clean your fingers well. A damp sponge to wipe your fingers on works quite well. The spots created with your fingers may not be perfectly round but they are unique, stylish and completely personal.
Use the Free ATM Network With the Green Dot card, youll also enjoy free ATM transactions at thousands of locations across the country. ATMs included within the MoneyPass network are available to you for no charge. MoneyPass also offers a free mobile application that allows you to locate participating ATMs near you so that youll never have to pay for an out-of-network machine. If you are unable to find a participating ATM near you, Green Dot card only charges $2.50 for machines outside of the MoneyPass network. Choosing a prepaid credit card is the first step toward achieving financial freedom. By maximizing the potential of your prepaid card, you can start saving money even more quickly and begin reaping in greater rewards. There are a number of bonuses and special offers available to consumers who take the time to find them. Spend a few minutes investing in your finances by paying attention to the great discounts offered by prepaid credit cards.
Next you will need something to draw with. I like to use a variety of drawing pencils. They are labeled with numbers and letters, like 2H, 2B, 4B, etc. I prefer to use 2B, 4B, and 6B pencils. The larger the number, the softer the graphite. You can get darker blacks with a 6B pencil. Get a few different ones to start with, and over time, youll see which you prefer. The H stands for "hard," and the B stands for "black." You will need erasers to clean up unwanted lines. I use two types. One is a kneaded eraser, which is a gray block. To use it, you pinch it like play dough, to any shape you want, then erase with it. Its perfect when you want to erase just one dot or skinny line of color.
I quickly put away the jar, vinegar, and baking soda and moved on to another exercise and another and another. At the end of each mindfulness class, I conclude with the same exercise: lying on your stomach and drawing your happy place. As soon as I announce that we are going to be doing the mindful drawing, they excitedly drop to their tummies and wiggle with the anticipation of a kid on Christmas morning. I pass out the fresh white paper and a can containing shards of crayons. The second their crayons hit the paper, you can hear a pin drop. There is no goofing around, there is no talking, but there is complete mindfulness. For fifteen minutes, they will draw, colour, and become immersed in their creation. Of course the real magic is not what is happening on the paper but rather what is happening in their mind. They are thinking about their happy place and then making it happen on paper - perfect mindfulness. It is the same as when we use guided visualization to enter into meditation.
Its also a good idea to have a larger one, about the size of a sheet of paper. 9 inches by 12 inches is a good size. Most papers these days are acid free, but if you have a choice, I suggest getting the acid free, because it will not turn yellow over time. I have a few drawings I made long ago that I wanted to keep, but the paper has turned yellow, because it wasnt acid free. So I suggest using it, because you may want to keep some of your drawings. I also like to get a pad of Bristol board. Thats like a heavier paper or a light cardboard. When you make finished drawings, you can use markers and felt pens on it, and they wont bleed through, like they will with lighter weight paper.
