Arranging Bills

A conductor, counting money.

I really love how drivers and conductors on buses and jeepneys arrange their bills. They fold each bill in half (lengthwise) and arrange them by denomination. They thread the whole bunch through their middle finger, so it looks like a fan. Pretty.

Practical, too. Because the bill is folded, it is easier to identify and pull out. Because it is nakaipit, it can be extracted smoothly and quickly. I'm such a fan of the folded approach that I arrange my money like that, in my wallet, which is really a small coin purse.
