Unformatted text preview: example of this function in my everyday life would be that sometimes I have a yard sale and I will collect money for which my customers get something of value to them that I had at a discounted price. The last function is called store of value. This is where “a money must be able to be reliably saved, stored, and retrieved-and be predictably useable as a medium of exchange when it is retrieved” (Wikipedia.org, 2011). An example of where I might use this in my everyday life is at Christmas time I will buy each of my children a gift card, so that later they can go and purchase a gift for themselves that they want instead of me getting the wrong gift.
