    About a year. We use the Euro over here in Europe so the $20 will be in my wallet until I fly to the US.

    depends on what country you are from... $20 note here lasts me anywhere from 1min... to 3 or 4 days depending on what im doing, if im working, or on holidays, if i already have food in the cupboard

    I have 20's from a year ago. Just not much reason to use large bills anymore, unless it's a ransom.

    Yup, thats about the size of it.


    Ohh, you are one of those men :tongue: Stingy like my father. :biggrin1:

    You remember the $20. Up until about 2 weeks ago, it was what you used to purchase a 1/4 tank of gasoline for your car. :irked:

    Depends which country you spend it in. Indonesia (2 nights ago) it will get you quite a few things,,, happy ending if you don't get too wasted before midnight as well. Even a tiger beer or 2...

    I often use my debit card if I have less then 30 dollars in my wallet. So it could be in there for awhile.

    If I'm lucky, a day, but it's spectacularly easy to spend money. I went grocery shopping last week and three plastic bags of groceries ran me $70 and that's without any meats, fish, or poultry. It's frightening (and actually cheaper to eat two meals a day from the Chinese restaurant!).

    In better news, I just filled my tank for $31.42 and that's premium! so it could be worse.

    I had my beard trimmed this morning at a neighborhood barber shop,
    not a salon....and it took $5 more than the $20 to pay for it.
    (including tip, of course)
    In NYC, or most any other place, I would imagine, it doesn't go very
    far anymore.

    I was just having this conversation recently. $20 basically lasts about .256 seconds from the time it comes out of the ATM with me.

    It will usuall be broken down into smaller denominations in no time.

    $5 to park @ work

    $3 for 2 apple juices, and a banana

    $10 for lunch @ trendy Downtown LA restaurant

    $4 for WWD newspaper...oh wait. I'm already done.

    I can't even use a full twenty without going over anymore. DAMN IT ALL.
