What large units of cash look like

This is what kicked off this "Visualize Everything" section of the site. Its lunchtime so there is not much time to add much to the first page, but let's get started!

But before we do, there are two things I should make perfectly clear...


We are using $100 dollar bills, not $1 bills.  We'll start with one packet...

This packet is a stack of one hundred $100 dollar bills. It's about 6" by 2-1/2" by 0.43" high.

100 x $100 = $10,000


Just some base information  if you want to visualize yourself in the mix

A "typical" college degreed earner at age 55:

Salary at Retirement

Annual Pension

Equivalent Net Worth


On to some real people!


This is not accurate per my actual net worth but lets just say I had $100,000 in net worth. It makes the visual scale up easier to visualize. 
The actual US average net worth is between $25,000 and $84,000 within the 25% -> 65%.

$100,000 in $100 bills. Kinda sad looking huh.




... and here is what a millionaire's stack looks like
