Crisp bills

I read the reader’s letter titled “Money Laundering 101” (Oct. ’03, pg. 45), on cleaning paper currency to use for travel. Fascinating. For those more slothful travelers, here is a suggestion.

I would imagine most banks are like mine. About four days before I want to pick up my trip money, I give my bank a list of the denominations that I want and when I will be in to pick up the bills. On the appointed day, I show up and the teller counts out all new bills. Less fatiguing.
