I KEEP SOME MONEY INSTEAD OF SAVING OR SPENDING IT

Money is to spend and save. We use it everyday in buying material things and services. People on the face of the bill has a story. Most of them were heroes. In my case, I keep some money instead of saving or spending it. There's a story behind of the money I still keep. It's not the story of the hero but the memory of the person who gave it.

I can't keep this 110 bucks so I took a souvenir shot before I exchanged it in the nearest money changer. This souvenir photo reminds me the kindness of Mrs. T in encouraging and helping me to make money online. I owe a lot to you. Thank you so much!

I have already a complete set of USD denominations from 5 to 100 bills. Part of the earnings was a special award given by Jeanny amounted to 10 bucks in connection with her birthday giveaways. I never expected it but you just surprised me.


Si Dong Ho hindi magpapautang kaya he insisted to pay the taxi fare. It was happened during his quick visit here in Western Visayas. It is now a souvenir money that I put in a souvenir album togethertogether with the photo of the travel magazine he gave me.

This 2 bucks was a remembrance and given to me by my Kababayan online friend living in Florida. I liked the way he inserted it between the two photos inside the letter mailed through post office.


I still keep this old 10 peso bill. It was a birhtday gift from my favorite niece. I will treasure it forever.

I can treasure more of little things. I really appreciate just a simple note for I can insert in a souvenir album and will keep it forever. Its memory remains there.


This post is still part of the on going 13 boring days about me.

i am keeping a few bills myself. one is a one-dollar bill my lolo gave me. he said it was his first dollar when he came to the US as a migrant. the second was a 100 peso bill with the UP centennial seal.
