Do you keep emergency cash on you, in your wallet etc?

I always keep no less than $50 safely tucked somewhere.

Just makes me feel better.

Yeahhhhh 馃憖 as I just sat down to enjoy an affogato I bought with the last cash I had 馃槀
@itsok ohhh! I bet was worth it

I always have between $20 and $60 on me, and I have a stash of a few hundred at home.

Mostly, as in almost always, I use one of two cards for purchases, eating out, groceries, gas, travel, etc. Why not, they give me up to 5% back馃榿
I keep cash for my local bums, emergencies, vending machine at work, tipping etc. We still need cash馃槶. I see everyone using their phone to pay for stuff and I think they're nuts.
@DarlingSelah my thinking exactly. I don't like relying on phone or just tapping that card. I need to have my cash handy for some things

I have cash.

Recently, my card would not work at the sandwich shop. Actually, nothing came up at all to pay for. The cashier was confused and asked a coworker for help, and she was cluless, too. Then his supervisor got involved, and figured it out. The cashier had hit cash not card.

So he asked me if I had any cash. Otherwise he'd have to renter the order then tell the prep people to only make one sandwich. I gave him cash. I had coins in my pocket for the first time in ages. I felt so old-fashioned. The pandemic really changed things. Before, I used to regularly pay for lunch with cash, especially fast food. Now, I always use my card.

No I don鈥檛 keep cash on me if I鈥檒l either lose it or spend it.

But I have a stash of $20 in my dresser at all times for anyone in my family who needs it.

Most of my jackets have bits of cash in one or another pocket
Some of the dive bars only accept cash, so of course.

come2gether51-55, M
I keep 150 in a compartment of my wallet that i forget about, until needed or somebody sinister like you gets me to reveal it
@come2gether you fell for my evil plan. Now i must see what else I can get you to reveal

Nitedoc51-55, M

NerdyPotatoM
I pay most of my shopping in cash so always have plenty, but I also have a few bills tucked away in another compartment for when I forget to refill.

I used to keep $1k on me at all times.. but lately my spending habits dont allow for it.

I spend cash if i have it
NeoerectusM
Rarely, unless on a trip somewhere.
NeoerectusM
@Bexsy Of course, I only use chip or swipe. I do not trust NFC reader tech since folks can steal easily. I deactivated my phone's as well. My wallet also has a protective liner.

When I do get cash, I love silver dollars and $2 bills...
@Neoerectus my wallet is also lined.
@Neoerectus wouldn't you know it. Just stopped at a gas station to get a juice to take to work ( trying to get more liquid in me) and chip reader was messed up. Had to insert 3 times then swipe. 馃え pain in behind
Cassieeeee31-35, F

@empanadas I have 60 at moment. Had to spend 10 when I stopped somewhere and system was down so couldn't accept debit card and I only have checkbook at home for certain bills. So, cash came in handy
