Currency is designed to be lost

Currency is designed to move away from us. Its convenience and its portability means it can be spent or wasted easily. The entire economy is after our bucks and needs our bucks to survive. To be wealthy, we have to start converting our currency into true wealth. Investments, commodities, real estate, precious metals, just to name a few. If we make it a hobby to collect as much of these as possible, our net worth will definitely increase. :)
