Alphabet Dollars....Have you heard?

I just have to share this with all of you.  If it is "common knowledge" and I'm the last to hear...then feel free to giggle till your hearts content.


I was chatting with a gal and she told me she is going to use her "Alphabet Dollars" to pay for something that is currently on her quilting wish list.  I had no idea what she was talking about, so I asked.

It is a way we save money in my guild to shop at shows, etc.  The us mint prints $1 bills with alphabets A through L. (I never found out why it stops at L -- if you have a $1 bill take a look on the right-hand side).  So we swap and save alphabets of our choice...I save Bs and Gs.  B for Bailey; G for GiGi which is what my granddaughters call me.  My friends saves Cs for Carrie; another friend saves A's for Annette.  I save K's for my granddaughter Kyndall and she puts them in her bank.  And we swap with each other too.  If Carrie comes across any Bs or Gs, she saves them for me and I just give the total in other cash.  So when we head out on a trip or quilt show, we have most of our spending money saved up...It might sound weird, but you would be surprised how quickly they add up and I don't miss them because I immediately put them in a compartment in my wallet and dump then in a bowl at the end of week. Last count was $150 since February.  I spend it strictly on quilty stuff. 
 Tell me this isn't clever?  I just loved it.  All this time I've been saving all of the alphabet!  LOL

Smiles,
Kelly
