What can you do with $5.00? Not as much as ten years ago. Same as any denomination of money, it doesn't stretch as far as before. I recently heard from more than a couple of sources that they save every $5.00 bill that they get. They stash it and then after a week or any determined amount of time put it into a savings account. Kudo's to them, what a great way to start saving money. Check out the article on Yahoo on the same subject.
