My hubs has led the Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace Class more than a few times so we use the cash envelope system. Meaning I pay with cash most of the time.
Most of the time my grocery bill is always over $100.00 for the week. It is not uncommon for me to pay with a $100.00 bill.
But, when the cashier holds up the bill to the light – my temperature raises enough to get a cold sweat.
I always think to myself – what if it happens to be counterfeit? What if someone took out the little plastic thing in the bill? (Are those things really in there still?) What if the bank gave me the bill so they wouldn’t have to deal with forgery and stuck it with me? I never check their money! Then the cashier sticks the money in her drawer like it was no big deal. I guess it wasn’t to her.
Well, the U.S. Treasury is coming out with a new $100. bill or C-Note to ward off counterfeits.

Do you see the bell in the inkwell? Can you see Franklin? I just love looking at money…it is like a history book. You can have a whole relevant lesson just with this one bill. I love history!
Dear U.S. Treasury,
Thank you for making this bill so that my cold-sweats will leave when I’m checking out of my grocery store.

Blessings to you!!! You are loved!!!
