What can you do with one Dollar?

What can you do with just one, single, dollar bill? What can you buy?

There are lots of dollar stores these days, and there are dollar sections in a lot of stores as well. Ah, but there is also tax, and all you get is the single bill, so that won't work.

So, now what? What would you buy if that was all the you could spend?

Some dollar stores also have discounted items that go two for a dollar, but again, you'd need change for tax, if you don't get the discount unless you buy two.

Sure, there are still things that can be had for less than a buck, but think about it before responding. There are lots of things that used to cost less than one dollar, that no longer do. Can you buy something to drink? Maybe, depending on where you stop. Can you buy something to eat? Again, maybe, but it depends on the place. You can probably find a small snack like a pack of cheese and crackers at a gas station. What about a pack of gum? Those small Wrigley's packs, but few others are less than $1. If you head to the supermarket, you can find some stuff, but when you're out and about your choices are limited.

A dollar just doesn't go very far these days, does it? What would you buy?

Convert it to peso, you can buy 1 klo of rice, or one meal at Jollibee or McDonalds or KFC. You can buy sone pack of brownies, or any kind of lemon squares, you can buy r packs of pancit canton noodles. Hehhehe that's what we can buy with one dollar.

Back when I was growing up there would be promotions nights in bars where you could buy a pint for a pound.
Those were the days!

I use euros, but I´m sure with just one, I could make a meal. Maybe it wouldn´t include the gas used for cooking, maybe it would.

I can get a cup of coffee at a nearby gas station for a dollar, and that coffee, surprisingly, is very good! I would opt for that to wake me up and get me going!

Currently, $1 is equivalent to Php44.04. With that much you can buy a value meal of burger, fries, and small drink in any of the fast food shops here in Manila. You can buy load for your pre-paid phone plus you can buy either a pack of noodles, a couple cans of sardines, or a couple pieces of bottled water.

There's certainly not a whole lot that you can do with a dollar.
