Default How much money to send her while in fci low

What does the average woman have for spending monthly in federal fci prison. ? Waseca specifically. Fci low security. After the first month of getting bigger items. Should 250 a month be plenty thereafter? For calling. Emails food everything basically.

If she uses 300 long distance phone minutes a month (any call that is not in the prison's local call range) that costs $63.00. Email costs 5 cents/min whenever she is logged into the system, to read or write messages. You can review the Waseca commissary list to understand what else she may need/want to purchase.

The actual amount depends completely on the inmate. Some will spend as much as they can, while many are able to get by on much less.
