How To Use Money Clips Properly
Using money clips seems easy enough, but if you don't use it correctly, your money and cards will be all over the place and you will have a hard time finding certain bills. The following are some tips on how to properly use your money clip.
First, arrange your money in such a way that the bigger denominations are at the bottom and the smaller ones are on top. When you fold the stack over, you know that the bills become smaller as you go from the outer to the inner part. If you want to bring more money but the stack is too thick, then use larger denominations instead of several small ones.
Next, place the money clip starting from the folded side and make sure it is secured. If you want to add credit cards or IDs, place them between the folded parts, not outside, to keep them safe. This arrangement makes it easy for you to locate your bills and keeps everything tight and secured.
