How much cash do you carry in your wallet?

Postby chandos » Sun Dec 04, 2011 6:17 pm

I'm curious to know how much cash you customarily carry in your wallet. A recent conversation with Robber Baron Rhen shocked me at the pocket wealth of our wealthiest members.

I buy everything on plastic these days but still carry cash in case of emergencies (like ice storms that knock out power to credit card readers). I like to carry $40, and I'm anal about that being comprised of 1-$20, 1-$10, 2-$5, 5-$1 bills.

(Our very own 1%'er, Jared, carries 10-$20 bills on him at all times.)

Usually $40 or less. I often have tons of small bills and change on me from tips from my delivery job, so I just roll with that.

Think this is pretty common. I get money deposited into my bank account, and I use my debit card to access that money.

What do you do for cash-only places? I used to not carry cash in college, but I kept running into too many of these places which seem to surround college campus. (Or people that want cash tips...)

For tip purposes, I started carrying a few $1 bills...but then the ice storm hit (Tulsa 2009)...ATMs went down and places weren't taking credit cards for a period of about 4 days and now I carry what I think is a tad more than the minimum (which I peg at $20).

At home little to none, else the kids nickel and dime me to death. When I'm at the rig I'm 200+ depending on how far away from home and the length of the job. When I was consulting I'd carry quite a bit on me all the time, was easy to just throw a 20 at someone to go buy pizzas for the crew or something.

Im a bartender that's too lazy to go to the bank, so anywhere from 0(when I finally do deposit what i have) to 1000+.

I realize this will change quick the first time i get mugged.

I used to never carry cash, but like you said chandos, sometimes it's surprising how many places won't take a card
now, I like to carry around $100 in cash, because it's enough to last long enough that I won't have to go to the atm more than once a month, usually less
mostly though I just like having it because it's easier to pay friends for things.
say someone picked up pizzas for a group of us, I can throw a 10 or something at them and then gorge myself.
also the wife seems to require fresh infusions of hard currency from time to time

Here in civilization if a place doesn't take cards they're usually a taco stand or a place owned by asians. Which means I'll just take my business to an establishment that embraces whitey's favorite tender type.
