I was walking out of the supermarket today and there was a fundraiser from a local little league baseball team to donate money to help. I felt bad saying no because had I had any cash on me I would have but it dawned on me driving home that I never really carry cash anymore. My wallet only allows cards because that's all I ever use, credit card or my bank card. Had they had a card machine out front I would have swiped and gave a few bucks, maybe the kids should be a little more 21st century about their pan handling.

Anyhow, do you carry cash or strictly cards

I very rarely carry cash anymore. I primarily just use my bank card and that is it.

I carry cash mostly. I find I spend less if I can physically see my money.

Interesting. The most cash I usually have on me at a time is $20. Maybe a bit more if I'm going out of town, or when I know I need it. I rarely pay cash for anything, and mainly use my credit card.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

I try to carry cash as much as i can

Carrying cash promotes savings

My girlfriend and myself have a huge jar for change. When we get paid we take out all the money we need for groceries and bills and then put the rest back in our savings accounts.


The change we have left over after paying our bills goes into that jar. Boom instant savings.


A lot of people see what is in their account and zero it out ( I'm talking about the people living basically, paycheck to paycheck, like myself)



So yes I do carry cash


Different strokes for different folks

I always carry between $100-$200 cash. It is still the most versatile means of payment and as others have said, hard currency tends to make you realize what you are spending whereas plastic can get out of control. Incidentally I never use my credit cards, they exist solely as a last resort. I think I've used a credit card two or maybe three times in the last 10 years.

I carry cash and just have credit as a back-up or for large purchase.

As a business owner, you lose a substantial amount of money from everyone paying with cards. Last year it cost me $3,600 to sell people things, which sucks considering that should have all been profit.

Although you can use cards for everything now, still keep cash on me.... Those ladies of the night do not accept cards.
