I was talking to our neighbouring farmer's wife yesterday and reminded her that her husband had not let me know how much I owed him for the wheat I had bought off him recently. I have some cash put aside and I wanted to say, proving how much I still translate things from English before speaking French, that if he didn't let me know soon, "The coffers would be empty." However I quickly realised I didn't know how to say that so I simply said something along the lines of: "If not the money will disappear." I couldn't remember the word for spend either!
