$0 - $40. Whenever I use an ATM I only take out $40 at a time and just get more as I need it. It's not weird to find me with $0 on me since I do use a credit card/debit card the majority of the time.

Exactly how I would answer. It might be rare to have none at all on me, but there are often times it's just a couple of bucks.

Lots. I have about $10k in cash on me right now. I'll be walking by City Hall in Philadelphia (the South side, near the Widener building) in about 15 minutes. Alone.

I'm starting to carry more now, not sure why. Maybe a subconscious fear that may bank may start charging a debit fee.

I withdraw $300 whenever I go to an ATM and work it down to $20 before I withdraw more. Any purchase I make for less than $50-$60, I pay cash normally.

At the moment, I have $187.72 on me. I also have a gun.

Same for me. I use my debit card for 99% of transactions, but if I'm near one of my ATMs I'll do a quick $40 withdrawal to have something extra in my pocket.

Normally over $100 since I always withdraw $200+ when I goto the ATM. Just feel more comfortable with enough cash for emergency use. When it's over $20 purchase, I usually will use my credit card. Keep small purchases and lunch to cash.

Not if I see you first.

Where's the "twikoff is my equerry" option?

And my answer is ... right now I counted and i have $14 and change. I'd say less than 20 unless I am planning to shop somewhere that I can't use my ATM card at.

This sounds about right. It's not unusual if I have zero in my wallet, but I often have a few bucks on me.

20 bucks at a time. I try to use cash as little as possible. It just seems to evaporate so fast, and harded to do a budget with cash purchases.

0. I only have cash if I owe someone money or someone who owed me money has just paid me back.

Re: How much cash do you usually carry around?

Usually have anywhere from 20.00 to 80.00. I typically don't carry a lot of cash. My kids get it all first or get it if I have any.
