Does Money Change Value?

Pop quiz.

Out of these three scenarios, which one is the best?

  • You found a $5 bill on the street.
  • You saved $5 on a $15 DVD.
  • You used a $5 coupon on a $1,000 flat screen TV.

It’s a trick question!

In each situation, you’re saving $5. And you can put that $5 to good use!

Sometimes, we allow ourselves to think that the value of money changes in different situations. But the fact is, $5 is $5.

Don’t allow yourself to believe that money isn’t created equal.
