“Change is good, but dollars are better”

"Change is good, but dollars are better” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many gift items, such as T-shirts, hats and mugs. The saying has been cited since at least 1995, when it was printed on a sweatshirt. It’s not known who authored the quotation.


12 May 1995, Garden City (KS) Telegram, “Rounding up print bites” by Dolores Hope, pg. 4, col. 1:
Sweatshirt messages: “Change is good, but dollars are better.”

22 January 1996, Marietta (GA) Daily Journal, “Tradition strikes out” (editorial), pg. 4A, col. 1:
Change is good, say the owners, And dollars are even better.
