If you’re anything like me you come back from a holiday with a little money, perhaps some coins and some small notes and then they get put somewhere and you forget about them. Until you go back to somewhere that uses the same currency and you turn drawers upside down trying to find these rogue coins. I do this all the time, I know for a fact I had some Hungarian Forint from last time I went to Budapest but can I find it? Course not!
Having Dollars, Euros, Hungarian Forint and Danish Krone to name just a few was starting to get irritating and I racked my brain to come up with an easy way of storing the cash. I had an idea and wanted to test it out so headed to The Range to buy this small plastic storage box. You can pretty much buy these anywhere: Wilkinson, Hobby Craft, B&M…. the list goes on. I chose this one as it wasn’t too bulky, had four larger slots but also some additional tabs to create smaller slots.
Once I located as much of my currency as I could find it was time to sort and label. Now I’m not an overly creative person and although I had great ideas of putting colourful bases into each one to separate them I just didn’t have the patience to do this (although maybe I will one day). I am planning to put a small label at the front of each section showing the currency and then in went the coins to begin with. Now I know notes can be a little tricky to keep small so I currently have them folded up at the bototm but I might buy some thin rubber bands to roll them up. And tada my currency organiser.
