If you are like most of us, you try to get the most bang for your buck with every given opportunity. Trying to make money stretch can be a tricky process.

Coupons, shopping around and plain ol' waiting for the deal are just a few ways my family and I try to get the most for our money.

A recent study from the Bureau Of Economic Analysis shows how far your money will go in each state. Montana fairs fairly well with this. We are not the best but we are definitely not the worst when it comes to this study.

It's says the value of $100 stretches to the value of $105.93 in the Treasure State. Not too shabby considering the worst is Washington D.C. where you would actually lose about $6 off that $100 bill.

The best was Mississippi where that 100 bucks stretches to $115.21.

I think it's pretty awesome. We are getting more than we could be getting for every penny we pour into our economy. I am just glad to see that we are technically not losing out when it comes to spending. Trust me, it could be a lot worse.

So the next time you're in a store, put a smile on. You are getting more for your money than most people and that is something to be proud of.
