    So far I have 211. I never counted them before, and I think this goes as far back as two years, but I could be wrong.

    I have no plans to spend them ever.
    Silly, but its like an offering...

    Saving money with no thought of ever spending it is the first step towards financial independence. My wife and I always saved, and retired young as a result.

    I have two but I'd feel like an asshole giving them out [​IMG]

    There's nothing like the feel of good ole fashioned greenbacks :)

    My millionaire friend in NY was advising that me that since the 70's, but I never listened, I have never saved, and I spend sometimes more than what I make; however, you may have changed my mind....

    The same way that I don't spend those dollars I can do the same with the other dollars.

    I would've guess I had maybe 70 not 200.

    My childhood friend used ten of his parents silver dollars (pre-1970) to pay for a pizza when they were worth ten bucks a piece. [​IMG]

    a.) Its never too late.
    b.) Take care of the nickels and dimes,
    and the dollars will take care of themselves.
    c.) Get into a 401K and save PRE-TAX dollars.
    d.) I'm proud to hear you say the things you've said.
