i work in a bank, so most of the time my money (bills/notes/coins) are new or fit, since we can exchange our mutes or unfit currencies directly. one time i went to the market and buy a kilo of fish, i handed the vendor a crispy new 5 pieces of 20-piso notes, that is P100. i was happy to see the vendors' reaction when she received my payment and say wow, your money is very new, i can keep and save it then...how about you, when you are paid/received with new bills will you be glad and keep it, instead of recirculating it to the public?

I hate to say it but I'd rather have the older money becuase it's easier to seperate older bills rather than worry about the newer ones sticking together. plus the new stuff looks like monopoly money LOL!!!

i got your point, its the risk when you have new money in your pocket, it really stick together, but i would suggest that you deposit your old money in your account in the bank or have it exchange it in your depository bank to fit notes instead of the new currency, so you can help your country maintain its clean note policy for their money. Fit money is in the middle category between New currency and unfit (old).Clean Note policy is a government policy to have the circulating money in the country should be clean to easily determine its genuineness.thanks for the respond.

i keep my money and make sure i don't regret spending it on things. i earn only a little and i work hard for it so it's quite sad if it all just goes to waste.
