How many bills do you have in your wallet?

Post by Olivier » Mon Feb 03, 2003 3:52 am

The Commission has evaluated that each euro citizen would need 24,7 notes... So, I wonder: how many bills do you have in your wallet just now?

I have two 10 euro notes right now, although I usually have about 4.

In addition to those, I keep one 20 euro note in a special place in my wallet, in case I run out of cash and the shop doesn't accept plastic for some reason. Kind of "reserve money" or something.. haven't used it for ages, though.

At this moment I've got 7:
5 * 10 euro and 2 * 5 euro.
Before the weekend I had only 6, but then I bought something with a not of 20 euro, and got 15 euro back. :)

Too bad EBT is down :(
I've got more than 50 notes to enter ! :)

since I'm EBTing I always carry a lot of cash around,
usually more than 10 notes ... I split the registered from the non-registered. That way I don't get nervous when too many unregistered notes are in my wallet, cause I have plenty of registered.

I don't really need any money, so I don't keep my notes in my wallet. But I do have more than ten notes at home, and now I have one in my wallet, because I'm going to go eat something.

One 50€ note, one 20€ note and one 10€ note, that makes three notes.

At the moment 6 notes: 1x E50, 1x E20, 2x E 10 and 2x E5.
But mostly I have got more than 10 or 15 notes, all in small denominations,so I can spend my time entering lots of notes... :lol:

I have 45 Canadian 100s and 1 50s on my wallet (my wallets exploding), I closed my personal bank account today. I closed my business as well with a draft for $3,504,562.25 and another one for my US business in $253,250.85. I don't remember do banks in France have youth accounts? My child needs one.

Yes, of course.
I have had my first Livret d'Epargne when I was just born. :-)

They can have their own account very early, but they will be able to have their own card at the age of 14 or 16, I think...
