    I hardly ever have any cash. If I know I’m going somewhere I’ll ask Paul for some but if I looked in my wallet right now, I’d be lucky to have 5 bucks.

    I keep one or two $20s hidden between my cards for emergencies. Normally I pay with plastic, but also usually keep a few small bills in my pocket, just in case I want to pick up a coffee or snack someplace where they don’t take credit cards.

      That’s a really good point, Lviss…. I used to have a ‘mad money’ stash in the house, and I’ve recently stuck it into the bank. But you make a really good argument for squirreling it back into my mattress!

    I usually only have a few dollars…and thats only because of our crazy two and one dollar coins I get stuck with!Its not to often I use cash anymore.

  5. Ellen says:

    A few dollars, some more some less. I mostly pay with plastic also.

    I very rarely have cash, unless I just got paid. We do better when our money is not in cash form. It disappears way too fast! We use our debit card for everything!

    a couple of bucks if I’m lucky! I never carry cash!

    I guess it depends on where I’m going and what I’m doing. I actually pay by checks mostly and some cash. No credit cards.

    I keep a “forgotten” $20 tucked in a hard-to-access spot in my wallet, that’s my ‘backup money’. But usually I have *some* cash, typically $50 or less, depending upon when I hit the ATM, and if Josh was with me at the time, because he’s already started the Mom Money Bleed…

    • SKL says:

      I don’t get the Mom Money Bleed because my kids know what I’ll say – work for it! Earn some money and then you can spend it however you like. If you can give Josh a simple paying job (in addition to his required chores), you may be pleasantly surprised. My kids get paid for certain yard work.

      I have to admit that a couple months ago, I softened a little. My daughter found a $10 Minnie Mouse doll at the bookstore and got all emotional. “Oh, it’s my other daughter, my older daughter.” She carried Minnie around the whole time as if she’d already completed the adoption process. Well, I told her that Minnie cost $10 and she would need to put Minnie back on the shelf and work on earning $10 before we returned to the bookstore next weekend. She complied. That was the week of some nasty cold and snow, but we finally got out there the next Saturday with the girls’ shovels and cleared the sidewalk. It wasn’t really worth $10 (especially with all the unauthorized breaks), but I paid it anyway. By the time we got to the bookstore, I was quite anxious lest we find all the Minnies gone. Luckily there was one left. Minnie is now one of my beloved granddaughters.

      • Joy says:

        I agree with you SKL. You do need to teach your kids that in order to earn money for things, you need to work. If they’re never taught that, they never learn the value of money.

        Beloved granddaughters!!! LMAO!!!

    never much more than $20
