A Pile Of Benjamin Franklins
We’ve always taught our kids to stay out of debt so when my son went to buy a car last weekend he brought a big stack of “Benjamin Franklins” ($100 bills for those not familiar with US currency). The purpose was twofold: (1) paying cash and avoiding debt as I mentioned and (2) having a stack of bills to flash in the negotiations a la Dave Ramsey. Once we determined the car was a good buy my son did his negotiating thing and a deal was struck. While papers were being written up I spread the bills out and snapped some shots with my iPhone just for fun.
