I didn't mean "the money you can only spend on salt", and if that's the myth, I'm sorry if I perpetrated it. I meant the money you are given for daily necessities, which includes salt. But I wasn't meaning that that's the literal translation of the word, and if that was how it came across, I apologise for my poor wording. I did try to emphasise money there.
