A dollar certainly isn’t worth what it used to be. That being said, a dollar still does have some value even today. Have you ever wondered “What can I do with a dollar bill?” There are countless things that you could do with it, but here are a few creative things that you might not have initially considered:
Leave it somewhere as a surprise for someone to find: While $1.00 may not seem like a lot of money, it’s still enough that it’ll bring a smile to most people’s faces if they unexpectedly find it. Stick it into a book at the library, leave it on a sidewalk or place it anywhere else you think a person will eventually find it to brighten up a stranger’s day.
Change the dollar into 100 pennies and enjoy a lot more things to do: Just because you have a dollar doesn’t mean that you have to keep it that way. Why not change it into 100 pennies and make multiple wishing well wishes, leave it on train tracks to see it get smashed or do some penny surfing. If you need more ideas of what you can do with all the pennies, here are 83 things you can do with a penny.
Buy a lottery ticket: While it’s true that the chances of winning the lottery are slim at best, spending your dollar on a lottery ticket will give you a bit of entertainment as you daydream that you’re actually the winner.
Register it on Where’s George: If you wonder where your dollar has been or where it may go in the future, you can register it on Where’s George. You can then track where your dollar goes once it leaves your hands and others that receive it in the future can see where it has been.
Examine it: Check to see where the dollar you have was printed (The Federal Reserve District seal indicates the name of the issuing Federal Reserve Bank and the letter in the center designates the Federal Reserve district.
