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??

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.

Very little cash for seldom have a need for it.
Have used cash award credit cards since 1986, for the last 20 years for all purchases. Never paid a penny in interest but have collected 1000's tax free dollars. :)
Never had a debit card or used an ATM and never will!
