I really liked having 50's and 500's. They seemed more useful for the everyday things that I was purchasing in cash.

Same with US dollars. I prefer 5's and 50's over all other denominations.

$20's rock!

Seriously though, most places won't accept a bill over a $20 due to being concerned about funny money. A $50 is as useless as a $100 in those situations. I would much prefer to be holding a bunch of $20's.
