Neat Trick: Dollar Bill Ruler

Neat Trick: Dollar Bill Ruler

Our favorite pocket-sized measuring tape busted a gut a while back and we had to toss it. We feel naked without it but keep forgetting to snatch up a replacement. Lucky for us, we have a secret trick in our back pocket (literally) that comes in real handy...

This may not be news to you savvy folk out in internet land (we heard this via an interview with Amy Sedaris who learned it from her postal lady), but we feel might clever with our new measuring trick. Grab that dollar bill out of your wallet (or $20 or $100 if you're lucky!) and slap that sucker down. There's your new six inch ruler. Half it and you got 3 inches, etc, etc. Go forth and measure!
