In this age of Debit cards and Credit cards, do you still carry cash??

I use credit cards for most purchases but I still carry a little cash
for small purchases like a drink or lottery tickets.

My grown kids never carry cash..for anything, they use debit cards.

What about you??? Is cash nearly dead??

I continue to not carry cash. Sometimes it is a problem. Particularly when traveling places where Cash is King.

Usually the only time I keep cash on me is when I am traveling for work so I can use it to pay tolls or to get a small snack from a gas station.

Many times you wind up spontaneously going out somewhere with a group. Someone might suggest "Let's go to that 25cent a wing place" or "lets go to the pub" or the cafe, or just go downtown.

Part of this process is a couple of members of the group having to stop at the ATM first. I'd rather bypass that step. I keep some cash on me.

With the economy the way it is today, I always carry cash with me. Sometimes I do use credit cards for whatever reason, but you have to be careful on how you use your card.

Yeah, the pop machine doesn't take credit cards, though the parking meters do.
