Small change, how do you all handle that?

<< < (2/5) > >>

Big Jim:
Never ever pay for anything with a small note unless you have to!

When I go into a supermarket, I will hand over a P1000 note for a P50 purchase.

I always hand over the biggest note I have and will wait for change if necessary.

I am not happy unless I have at least P200 in P20 notes on me at any given time.

Then when I am in a location that will not give change, such as a taxi, I have no issues.

I also like to collect P1 coins for use in the ATM machine (Automated Tubig Machine). The ones I use dispense about 1 litre of purified water for about P3

Much easier if you live here full time.  Every Christmas my wife gets one hundred 100 peso notes from the bank; new notes to give to kids.  We give away 30 or so and use the rest throughout the year.

I really like kids and am going to do what you do, that is giving the neighborhood kids brand new 100 peso notes. I thank you for the idea.

It's nearly impossible in my region to get small change, the stores the banks they won't give out change and even 1000 pesos at the 7-Eleven or the Alpha Mart is a challenge, filtered water delivery is a challenge also, I had to switch because they previous water spot held on to my monty all day and then forgot about it try to get us change, so a Municipality of nearly 40,000 people and nobody has change, I'm not kidding.

Only way I can get enough change for a token fee is to buy change from the Wetting or gambling spots and I usually need to wait till the end of the day, I never have any small change it's a total pain.

I just wait til theres alot an take them to our local sari store she loves to get the change.
