What Is Your Dollar Actually Worth?

“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
Matthew 6:33

They say a dollar doesn’t go as far as it used to, but what is your dollar actually worth? A dollar in 1945, the year Villa St. Francis was founded, would be worth $14.44 today. Every year we see prices go up, and we get less for it. It can be downright thrilling when we find a great deal. cookie making

In the Kansas City metro, you can find a candy bar for about a dollar. But do you want a candy bar? Your dollar is subject to a concept called “perceived value.” This is the price you are willing to pay for something. When you want something you might be willing to pay more. When you see an item for less than you would pay, your desire for the item might increase. What is your dollar actually worth? That is up to you.
