Weird phenomenon... is it a sign or just coincidence?

Ever since opening last year, I’ve always had to buy “change” from the bank on a weekly basis; particularly ones, quarters and pennies. But in the last three months, I have been getting an influx of one dollar bills. In fact, I had so many ones that I had to sell them back to the bank. It was weird.

I don’t know what to make of this. Could this somehow be linked to the state of the economy or is this just sheer coincidence? Are people breaking open their piggy banks to buy pizza? I had a slight price increase in November, but I can’t see how that would affect this. Also, my Cash to CC ratio has not changed.

Anyways, it’s not a major deal if I don’t figure this out. But I sure hope if it’s the “piggy bank” theory, that the economy starts to improve soon.

I never buy ones and fives. Going through more coin lately however . . .

Each time I have changed prices I have found the mix changes as far as what i need for change. The strange thing I have noticed is one week I can never keep $5 bills the next week my cash drawer is overflowing with them.
