About 40 dollars. And that is only because some places still only accept cash, or will charge you a fee to use a credit card.

Same. I don't usually carry cash at all--just my debit and credit cards. If someone pays me back with cash, I'll stick it in there, though and usually forget I even have it for weeks or months. I do, however, keep a cup holder full of loose change in my car--there's probably about $15 in there at the moment.

After finding out the ridiculous credit card fees that the retailer has to pay with every swipe of the card (percentage of total purchase fees, flat fee per card swipe, 3rd party merchant fees, batch fees, and the retailer even pays all of those rewards and cash back bonuses that the credit card companies love to promote), I can understand why some stores refuse to accept payment by credit card. With some credit cards (most of them, actually), the retailer will lose money on small purchases like a pack of gum or candy bar.

I try to pay with cash for everything these days (unless I'm in a big corporate chain like Wal-Mart) to help the little guy out, even if it's a dollar here and a dollar there. It all adds up. Shop small, shop local. Save the little guy.

$80 or less. Why $80? Because I usually withdraw no more than $80 at one time.

I am absolute garbage at remembering to keep cash in my wallet. So maybe $3 or so on a normal day?

I should start carrying cash and change more.

But I mostly use whatever amount my debit card has wherever I go.

Anywhere between $5-$300. Yeah I probably should stop withdrawing so much, but I'm really lazy and want to avoid going to the atm again as long as possible.
