How do you handle cash?

Bills all facing the same way and neatly arranged in order of denomination in a billfold, or wads of cash crumpled in the bottom of your pocket/purse?

What do you consider to be "carrying around cash" i.e. how much do you carry?

Do you ask for credit/debit card receipts?

If so, what do you do with them?

How many cards do you carry around?

Change usually. Not usually notes - debit card is for that.

That's my way.
Change loose in the jeans' pocket, more in a sack that once hold an electric shaver.

Despite having credit card and banking card with me I also do carry enough money to make on-the-spot purchases in cash. Usually around 200 € which will get me a taxi-ride home wherever I might get stranded, PLUS will had covered earlier for a full tank of gas / petrol should the filling station's e-payment be out of order.
But those € usually last for a while as most substantial bills are paid by Credit Card (1 active, 1 backup with a different validity period, as I have had the problem that an airline wouldnot accept my credit card as it would have expired by the time the flight was due).

Any credit card slips get thrown away periodically if I am in the mood (like every 2-3 months).

I'm a little obsessive compulsive about my money. In my wallet, all the bills (CDN $) have to be in order from largest denomination in the back, to smallest in the front, with the faces of every bill facing forward (meaning the person's head is on the left).

Quoting Revelation (Thread starter):

Never more than $100 (unless I have a really good reason on that particular day to carry more).

Always. I usually keep them on my counter for a week then throw them out.

Credit cards? Just my one Visa, no need for more

I have a debit card + credit card + business credit card that I always carry with me.

I pay mostly by debit card too, but sometimes I'm just not confident paying with it in some local stores. I got my debit card cloned once and now I'm careful.

I never carry cash. In fact, my wallet doesn't even have room for cash. I have 1 debit card (which I never use) and 9 credit cards - one of them being my primary one that brings in the airline miles.

I'm huge on budgeting and finances, so using plastic makes it much easier to categorize things.

Personally, I think there is some merit to the procedure. It helps one to know what they have in their wallet.

Another reason why I posted - why do I keep asking for receipts since I can't be arsed to organize them?

Right now, the last several years of receipts are in a shoe box in more or less chronological order.

My ex wife used to insist I get receipts and she'd do the organization of them and balance the credit card bill monthly, but I can't be arsed to do so. I scan the credit card bill to look for any shocking unexpected charges, and that is that.

Same for the ATM receipts.

Quoting GrahamHill (Reply 4):
Never more than $100.

My trip to the ATM is usually for $200, and I let that trickle down to $20 or less before the next trip to the ATM, unless I am going on a trip or something, when I carry more.

I definitely do not like writing checks, so I tend to keep cash around to pay for some things that others might write checks for.

When I'm carrying cash I go from small to high value in my wallet. But I'm really happy with less than $20 in cash on me most of the time - I want the FF miles I get from using my single credit card.

I do get credit card receipts, especially when I've added on a tip. I'll look at the credit card billings several times a month to ensure everything looks like normal, then I'll both pay off the account and toss the receipts.

I have only one credit card, but have two debit cards. The only time I use a debit card is when I'm shopping at Sam's. When I was traveling a lot on business I used to keep a backup credit card with a small balance. Just a $1K limit in case my card was lost or stolen.

I participate in eurobilltracker.com so I will usually sort my bills when entering them, but I'm cash averse because it has a tendency of burning my hands, so I'd rather not have any and just use my carte bleue (French debit card). No backup card at the moment but I had once the date problem so I'm probably going to open an account at another bank.

I always do. I use Quicken to track my accounts, so I use the receipts to enter the transaction. From there, they go in a pile on the desk, and usually I'll dispose of them once the bank statement has come in (unless it's something that I might need the receipt for, rebates, or large item, etc.) - although I've got a bunch of old receipts kicking around that I need to get rid of.

By denomination in a money-clip.

Quoting Revelation (Thread starter):

I withdraw $100 from the ATM. When it runs out, I get another $100. This lasts anywhere from 1 week to 2 weeks depending on usage.

Yes.

Input into Quicken and compare with online statements, once a week or so.

Quoting HT (Reply 2):
1 backup

  

I keep a very thin and minimal wallet, one that I keep in my front pocket. No billfold for me, I have essentially a card holder and I slip money into one of the slots. I have one ATM card (that I use as a debit type card - but it is not "branded", meaning part of the Visa or Mastercard system). I have two personal credit cards, one primary and one as a backup, and a company card. The other cards are my license and health insurance card. Everything has it's place in the wallet.

My bill organized low to high and are folded and with the lowest denomination on the outside. I also almost always organize them based on "quality", so I get rid of the ones that in the worst condition first. (Question to people here: Do you ask for better condition bills if you are given poor condition bills?)

I tend to review everything online about three times a week and keep a custom "expense calendar" spreadsheet that I developed years ago to track all my expenses and project my future budget for the year. Because of this I budget every card to be paid in full every month.

Quoting Revelation (Reply 6):
Another reason why I posted - why do I keep asking for receipts since I can't be arsed to organize them?

I often have wondered this myself. I do actually review my receipts but normally before I pay for the items or leave the establishment. So why do I need to keep them? I dunno, but I am sure it is the right and smart thing to do!   Or at least so I have convinced myself (only to question it as I throw the stack of them out the following week).

Never. I will never have a branded debit card (which is what I am assuming most people are referring to) as the protections (at least here in the USA) are so much lower than that for credit cards. You are at the mercy of the issuing bank and what they decide to do (though most banks have policies that are on the surface similar to their credit card card policies).

Not sure what your issue is. Of course, I only keep a minimal amount (under $1000, usually well under) in my checking account and the overdraft protection is linked to another credit card whose only function in life is overdraft protection. It is not carried, nor used online.

That's something else I never use. I have linked account but don't sign up for what the bank calls "overdraft protection" (and charges an arm and a leg for if it happens. If I can't budget and afford it, it needs to bounce or not go through).

Quoting fr8mech (Reply 12):

I am probably overly picky but I am very particular and since debit cards cost the same kind of money (merchant fees etc) as credit cards (in some cases more) and offer less protections than credit cards I refuse to patronize them and use them. I guess it is like any service you don't like, if you don't like it then don't use it. Now if they ever do become controlled and regulated like credit cards and have reasonable/lower costs than credit cards I may use them (which I guess negates my use of the word "never" above  Smile ). But for now I can budget and pay off may cards so why not use someone elses money for free (so far) for 30 days?

Just my preference (for what I think are good reasons).

The bounce charges are just as high as the overdraft fees. I'd rather pay the overdraft than have whoever I tried to pay have to deal with a problem.

That I understand. I use my credit card for most of my purchases and use the debit card for just a few day to day things. Not really sure I can even delineate which merchants get the debit and which get the card. My wife and I can't get on the same page. No big deal; the same money is spent whether it's debit or credit. It's gone and paid for by the end of the month. Just loosing out on some points.

You guys are my heros.

I just can't get the motivation to do what you do.

I've been using quicken for at least two decades now.

I used to use it to print my checks (since I hate writing checks) and now I use the bill pay feature so all my payments are in one place instead of at each financial institution's web site.

I have to say I think it's horrible software.

I use it to pull in data from my investments and it creates all these garbage entries in it.

None of my investing accounts are correct in terms of their balances, and it pisses me off.

It's user interface is dated and clunky.

It's reports system is also dated and clunky and is more or less designed for you to push the data out to Excel because its report system is so weak.

At one time M$ was offering a free switchover to Money, but Money just would not import my data correctly.

If I could find software that would handle my investment accounts correctly, I'd switch over at the next Jan 1st and be done with Quicken.

I honestly can say I never have, but I do tend to organize the bills in my wallet by quality and try to get rid of the crappier ones first. This too is an unexplainable behavior, it's just something I do.

The other night as I was leaving a ball game, a homeless person approached me to ask for money for food. I told him I did not have any cash. He smiled and said not to worry. He said he only accepted credit or debit cards and promptly pulled out a portable credit card machine. Interestingly enough, he did not take American Express because the merchant service fee is too high.

That's interesting. Last October we had an early snow storm that caught the trees with their leaves still on, so many trees snapped and power was out everywhere. One of the few restaurants that was open was Dunkin' Donuts, and it had a line going out the door. A twenty-something couple got to the head of the line after waiting a half hour, and only then they heard that the connection to the bank was down and no credit/debit was being accepted. The two of them could not come up with any cash at all, which to me was amazing. Really, absolutely no fallback at all? I hope they learned a lesson. Actually I would have just given them the cash for some coffee and a bite to eat, but they got a bit huffy about the situation and headed towards the door, and it was too crowded to talk to them.

I was in D.C. when the storms went through last month and was staying in an area without power. I always keep an emergency cash fund in the car of $50 bucks in the form of a $20, a $10, 2-$5 and 10-$1 bills. The only places open for business had power but could only accept cash. People need to remember, in an emergency; cash is king.

I'd have her sign a receipt. My bank (Chase) posts an image (back and front) of every check cleared online the day it clears. I'll be damned if I pay an extra $22 a month because of a thief.

I pay with it more often than not simply because I hate breaking a note and carrying change around. Drives me mad and I always seem to have a big note for a cheap item so I end up buying a can of coke etc with a £20 note.

Mine isn't branded (it's issued by the bank so I assume that's what you mean by not branded). I have 2 - a main one then a backup one that I put my leftovers on (never used for online purchases etc) so I know I can spend it if it's on that card. The protections on it are reasonably similar to a credit card (which I will NEVER have, seen too much debt come about because of them) and if I don't have the money - I can't afford it. Simple, how I like it.

I find it the best way of keeping track of my spending, as one statement will show all my spending. I also get miles on it too, so win win I guess.

The MasterCard branded debit cards issued through my bank have protection and benefits very similar to a MasterCard credit card. I have one of their Delta SkyMiles branded World MasterCard debit cards which earns me SkyMiles on every purchase (I pay an annual fee on this card much like with a credit card, but it is worth it. I started out with the similar branded Visa debit card about three years ago, but the bank switched to MasterCard about 2 years ago for their debit cards.). I'm grandfathered in on the card as they no longer offer to those with their most basic checking account.

I usually try to keep my bills organized with the smallest bills in the front. I typically carry no more than $10-20 as I prefer to use my debit card so I can earn SkyMiles. I only have a debit card, so that's the only card I carry in my wallet. Typically any receipts I get (with the exception of stuff like clothing or electronics) end up getting tossed or if I have a choice of not getting one, I don't.
