Stocking up on frozen fruits, veggies and meals for the winter

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Frozen Food Foundation for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

It is about to turn crazy cold here in Spokane. For me anytime it hits single digit temperatures I have no urge to go outside or run errands. I am not a cold weather girl. I like warm tropical breezes and a nice hammock but that is not happening here in Spokane right now.

We have started carrying a Visa Prepaid card with us that I use anytime we get somewhere I just don’t feel comfortable using my normal Visa Card.

I feel better knowing that the Visa Prepaid card has a specific dollar amount loaded on it and I do not have to worry that my entire credit line will be maxed out by a thief.
