Introduction: $1 Magnet-money-moneyclip
As a European I have to admit, that I envy your $.banknotes. Really. If you were in Europe after the launch of the Euro you will agrre with that. There is no 1-Euro-banknote. Thats why we don't have money clips but instead have the consideration of sometimes up to $20 in coins. Yes, in coins. Maybe we should reintroduce the moneybag like the sheriff of Nottingham has one in the cute Disney Picture.
But in defiance of my enviousness I will not deprive you of this cheap and fancy money clip.
Disclaimer 1 (Thanks to Belcher1035): Using this money clip to carry credit cards is a bad idea, because the magnets used in this instructable will harm or even destroy them.
Disclaimer 2: try444 wrote me the following:
"What? No credit? Was it in fact a coincindence?
You should at least make mention of Scott Amron's design that was published a week prior to be fair instead of passing it off as your own."
"fair instead of passing it off as my own" ???
But it was my own. Maybe later than Scott Amron. But this not-cool-ado is annoying. I know you got the best motives, but I also got those with the money clip, I thought of. [Ã¢â¬Â¦] Maybe I unpublish this instructable and this seesaw has an end. I got enough other ideas for instructables, I don't need this stuff.
P.S.: I am here in Germany, I know this is not such strong argument but I don't read at least one of the sites you listed.

Step 1: Supplies:
- a banknote (for the clip)
- many banknotes (to clip)
- then indispensible duct tape
- square neodymium magnets (2 to 4, deppend on size)
- super glue (this is optional)
Step 2: 3 Things to Do
First of all get the note you decided to be your money clip.
Attach the magnets onto the edges of the note on the side you want to be the inner side of your money clip. You can fix them additionally with the super glue. Now fix each of the magnets with a piece of duct tape.
Step 3: Clip Your Money and Go.
Now get a bunch of banknotes and clip them.
Have fun with your new minimalistic money clip.
