Follow Your Cash

Well it is Christmas and we all know that the money just seems to fly from our wallets. Why not have some fun with it and find out exactly where it goes! Yesterday I got this $20 at Walmart. The writing caught my eye so I thought I would check it out. The address led me here. It is a fun little website where people enter the serial numbers on their bills and they can track where and when they have travelled. This $20 of mine came from Quebec, a little over a year ago. There is no other entries for where it has been. After I spend this little beauty I will be waiting with baited breath for somebody else to enter it at the website. When I have a spare minute I will have some fun entering new bills of my own.
There can also be an educational aspect to this website. Wouldn't it be fun for students to see just how far across the country our money travels?
Anyways, back to wrapping presents. If you come across a bill like this in your travels have some fun and enter it in the website.

Happy Holidays

Well this past month has been quite busy. Between preparing for my son's first birthday party, Christmas preparations, and working for a living I have not made enough time for blogging. Don't worry, I have found a few gems to write about and will post them up when I find the time.

Until then, have a safe and merry holiday!

(And remember to take it easy on the eggnog........)
