No, I looked at how much I had, then started planning what to spend it on.

Yeah. I wish I could go back to that. Now I count all the money I have and get really sad.

yes. I used to think 20$ was a fortune to me! Those were the good days..

Oh yeah, especially if it was all change…but it always looked like more than it was!

Occasionally, but my younger brother used to actually iron his $1 bills; he loved crisp money and I knew of no other kid who was that enamored with having it-Richey Rich was his idol.

That’s so funny…is he now very picky about his clothes?

When I was little (maybe 7 or 8), every friday after school I would go to my grandma’s house, and at the end of the visit she would give me $5. I always tried to save as much as possible (though spending a dollar or two at the dollar store from time to time). The night I counted $99 I was so happy. I borrowed $1 from my sister just so i could have $100 even.

Yeah, I have OCD about that; I save my most of my money, and I’m constantly counting and recounting it, and I always have.

Yup I did. I was very proud. And the more I got the happier I was.

Then at christmas we would go to JC Penny’s and they had a special place for kids to shop where everything was marked down so it was affordable and we could buy our own gifts for our parents.

Haha I remember I would collect pennies and throw then around in public places bragging about how much money I had. I would love to count.

Used to? I still do. In the winter when it is nasty out, we will dump the big giant jar out w/ all the change and start rolling coins. It is amazing that “loose” change adds up to $200—$300 dollars. Very cool!

I used to know exactly how much was in my wallet. Now I have no idea.
