Once you have said currency, no need to SPEND IT ALL!

We keep envelopes of currency to give us a jump on future trips.

One caveat is that some countries do change their currency. Each of the last two years I have gone to the UK and have had at least something that needed to get changed at a bank.

(Me with my British Scotland Yard friend who review my cash when we have dinner - "My currency doesn't change." Him - "and do you know what the most laundered currency in the world is ? " ;)
