Do you carry cash?

or do you just use a debit/credit card for all your purchases? I know there are some people that refuse to carry cash and then there are those that refuse to carry a debit card. Which are you?

  • I have to carry some cash for tolls, the produce store and the snack bar at the swim club. Other than that, I use my debit card.

  • I carry cash. It's more or less my own allowance. I can't spend beyond that. I have such a hard time staying within my budget, so if I don't have the cash for it, I don't allow myself toget it

  • I hardly ever have cash. I pay for everything with the debit card.

  • I usually carry a 20 on me just in case but mostly I rely on my debit card.

  • I like having some cash on me. I keep at least 20 on me at all times and my debit card. You just never know some places don't except the card.

  • I do carry a small amount of cash-I don't want to pay for something small with the debit card and roadside stands etc don't take cards. I use a card though for most things. Small businesses appreciate it when you use cash since they are charged a fee for you using a card so I try to accomodate on small purchases at a local small business.

  • I mostly use my card, but I'd rather carry the cash. I don't want to see another thing closer to the end of the world (a cashless society). I just don't carry as much because it costs me about $5 each time to withdraw the money from the ATM between my banks fees and the fees from the ATM.

  • I've usually got cash on me, I'm a server so I get paid daily...in cash. I make a deposit a couple of times a week but If I have cash on me i'm going to use it instead of using my debit card. The bank acct is for bills and thats about it.
