How to organize different currencies

Jump to last reply

I got to thinking that all those prescription bottles you get from the pharmacy (you know the ones that are usually see though orange-ish and come in different sizes)? Well, it seemed such a waste to constantly throw them in the trash or even recycle.

We just returned from a trip to Canada and I was about to throw all the extra coins into my foreign currency box along with coins from all different countries, when I thought I could organize the money from different countries so I could easily find and use it when a friend was traveling to that country or if we were going back again.

These prescription pill containers are perfect for paper bills and especially perfect for coins.
And if you are going to different countries and need various coins/bills you can keep them easily separated and easily found in your bag when needed. The prescription instructions peel off very easily.

This may be commonly done - or previously suggested, but I just thought of it!! I may be way behind others who've used this idea or may be out in front. :)
