Where's George?

Have you all heard of Where's George. com ?

Do you ever wonder where that paper money in your pocket has been, or where it will go next? This is the place to find out.

All you need to do is enter the denomination, series, and serial number of any US dollar bill, and your current USA ZIP or Canadian Post Code.

I found a bill last month that had the George url stamped on it. So I went there and entered that I had found the bill. I was the first person to enter this bill since the person in California had entered it over two years ago. I bet that person was quite excited to know that the $1 bill had traveled all the way to Michigan - over 2,000 miles!

Today I got a notice in my email that someone else had found and reported the same bill. I was so excited to go find out where the $1 bill I had in my hand last month was found. It was in a city 160 miles away.

Whenever I find bills with the Where's George on it, I try to get to a computer and enter the serial number because I know someone is waiting out there to find out.

A lot of people get hooked on this. Like the person who started this bill said he/she had over 47,000 bills out there! It must be a full-time job tracking them!

If you've never heard of it, check it out. You might enjoy participating.

Who knows, maybe one of your bills will find its way into my hands. I see a lot of money since I do the hotel deposits every morning.


  1. I have never heard of this! How facinating. Makes a solid case for washing your hands after you handle money!!

  2. Neat! This sounds like something my Sean would enjoy!

  3. I've seen a couple of those, but didn't really follow through. Maybe I'll try it next time!

  4. I've entered a few dollars on the website and got feedback on just one I think. I have 2 more to enter..must get it done. We see them at shows every so often.
    I think it's interesting to track them.

  5. Looks like fun.

  6. I had heard of this but have yet to come across a bill that has the web site stamped on it! Now I want one!!! I can see where it would become addictive to try to trace all your bills...yup, it's all I need..another addiction! lol

  7. I remember that site! Went to it a long time ago and thought about it for about a minute! haha! They pass through my hands so fast that if mine did come back to me, I would never know it!

  8. There is a similar type of thing that people do with books -- though books wouldn't be as well-travelled as bills. The site for that is:
