It's the ultimate in thrift: Show us just how much you can do with a 10-spot.
Grab yourself an Alexander Hamilton and spend the weekend seeing how much he can buy you. Spend your $10 as thriftily as you can. Then, when your pockets are empty, show us all the loot you got. A giant bag of groceries? Ten $1 movies? Furnishings for an entire room at the thrift store? Two really, really good cups of coffee? The sky's the limit.
Take a photo of everything you got with your tenner, or film yourself spending it. How far can you make your $10 stretch?
And for our international community -- here's a currency converter so you can see how much you'll have to spend to equal US$10.
