There are some people I know who were so systematic that even the paper bills in their wallet are so arranged very systematically, meaning all thousands all together, all five hundreds all together, all one hundred all together, even small paper bills are so arranged. Me, I am not that systematic, firstly I dont have thousands and five hundred always, mostly one hundred, but I just put it nicely n my wallet. I dont fold it and separate the big ones from the smaller paper bills. Are you that systematic?

you should make it a practice to be systematic in every which way you can because this will save you a lot of time. if your wallet is organized then it is easier for you to get the denomination you need.

Very well said. I like things to be organized but due to lack of time sometimes my things are not well arranged. I am starting to improve and later I will be organized. Thanks for the response.

Wish I had all that money!! I have a pocket in my purse that I stuff my cash in, when I carry any. I try to keep a couple of dollars in there. I'm definitely not organized. In fact, I spent an hour this evening cleaning all the bills and other paperwork off my dining room table so I can actually eat there!

Its time to organize. Are you living alone. See, if you are well organized there will be no problem eating your dinner at once, you dont have to clear the table. You can read some of the comments and so far all are organized. Thanks for the response.

Me either, I am not systematic. I just have to separate paper bills and coins then am all set. But sometimes, bigger bills like 500's or thousand's, I keep it on my bag or pocket, you know just incase i lose my wallet I still have most of my money.

Very practical. You might be busy thats why. I also keep the 500 and 1000 in my pants pocket when I go somewhere or in shopping. Its safe there. Next time its nice arranging them the way others do. Thanks for the response.

For me maintaining the paper bills i do it systematically but not with other house hold stuffs. I am a bit messy. Paper bills are very important so i arrange it nicely in the purse, its nice to be that way as most of the times we are in a hurry for something or the other and in such cases we don't have to fish around the purse looking for the papers. There are people who are very neat and tidy like arranging their clothes in their rooms and other stuffs and those are the people who does not look around for things here and there so, we should try to like that.

So at least you are in the first step of being systematic. It is maybe being busy that your house hold stuffs was quite messy. But you do have the intention of putting it in order. Others can do that because they are not working and they dont do other things. Thanks for the response.

I keep all my bills in order, facing the same way too. I like to know where the money is when I go to take a bill out of the wallet and also don't want to make a mistake pulling the wrong bill out. I think I started doing this watching clerks and the people at the bank straightening out the money after I gave it to them. I don't have that many hundreds - that's a lot of money here in the US

So youre also in order. I like my money not folded also and I want to pull in the right one. In your house you might also be very systematic. Thanks for the response.

I like to have my £20 together, £10 together and £5 together that way depending on how much I have spent, its is eay for me to get the note out that I need, and saves me having loads of unwanted change. I dont have £20's that often but when I do I organise them to my liking unless Ive just got it out of the bank and then I'll shove it in and will sort it out later. I like the notes facing the same way aswell, the Queen's head has to face one way not sure why. Im like that at work, I work as a cashier and have all the Queen's head facing towards me. I hate it when someone else has to go on my till and just shoves the notes in any old how!! Think I might have that OCD thing, in a small way!!

You are a cashier thats why. And did you know that being in finance before I know how to count bills fast with just the tips of ther fingers. But because I am not in constant exercise my counting gets slower. You are an organized person and if in money you are then the more in your house things. Thanks for the response.
