Last week April put her Tracfone on the counter and informed me she needed more minutes. Sorry April, mom is not going to add minutes via the computer any more. She needs to learn how much those minutes really cost.
In an hour she:
Calculated how much money she needed for minutes, new shoes, haircut and other expenses and then wrote a check on her account.
Got her hair cut.
Learned how to add those minutes to her phone. A snap for April with all her phone skills. As soon as minutes were added she was back to texting even before she could put her things away.
