It's Friday afternoon at the grocery store. The line is long. First there was the lady with all the coupons who paid only $2.98 for $100 worth of groceries. That took awhile. By now I've perused all the magazines and have learned new tips for a red hot sex life and how to lose 20 pounds in 10 days. Pretty good day's work I'd say!
The line is finally moving! Not fast, mind you, but at least it is moving. The lady ahead of me is fishing money from the bottom of her purse. She knows she has change and intends to find the exact amount. It takes even longer and everybody is getting antsy but ...I must admit...I've done it myself many times.
No more though. Suzie Orman, well known financial guru, says you should not spend your change. Pay with bills only. If your purchase is $15.23, give the cashier $16 and pocket the change. If it's $24.72, give them $25 and take the .28 home. Why? It has nothing to do with moving the line along. Suzie says take your change home, empty your change out every day and you will have an extra $30-$60 at the end of the month.
