Currency Converter

Here's a tip on how I simplify currency conversion for me when I'm traveling.

It's easy to find a currency converter on the Internet but I like Oanda.com the best because of the little 2.5" x 3.5" Travelers' Cheatsheet I can create.

When at the home page of Oanda.com , click on Travelers in the blue bar. Click on the drop down arrows to choose the currencies you'll be converting between. Then click on CheatSheet. Print.

Next, click on Reverse FXCheatSheet® and print again. I cut out the two small boxes, place them back to back and 'laminate' them with clear, wide sealing tape. If you don't have sealing tape, a couple of strips of Scotch tape works well too.

Slip into your pocket or wallet and you are set. Bon Voyage!
