Making Cents of Change ~ Paper Layout by Andrea Friebus

Get those creative juices flowing…

* What do you do with your change?
* If you see a penny on the ground, do you pick it up?
*  Who pays the bills in your family?
*  What methods do you currently use to make purchases?
*  How has your purchasing method changed over the years?
* Do you balance your checkbook and/or reconcile your account(s) on a regular basis?
*  Do you buy on credit?
*  How many credit cards do you use?
*  Do you spend beyond your means?
*  Do you have a budget? Do you follow it?
*  Do you bank online?
*  Do you carry cash?
*  Do you share an account with a spouse or partner?
*  Do you use fancy customized checks or standard issue?
*  How often do you actually see the money you barter with?
*  What is your bill paying process?


Documenting this part of your life now may help others…

* Compare the tools and methods used to trade today versus other periods of time.
* Gain a better understanding of the logistics involved with making purchases in this era.


Other ideas

*  Create a balance sheet for some area in your life, financial or otherwise.
*  Adopt a popular slogan or ad campaign of a current financial institution as the title or theme of your page.
