I only use credit cards for personal stuff when I can't use cash (except for fuel purchases at the pump). When I have it I will carry several hundred in cash in my wallet. Never know when you might find a cash only deal you need to take advantage of! Also, I find that paying in cash is always cheaper than paying iwth credit cards even after you factor in the "rewards". Do you really think they are paying you those "rewards" out of generosity?You are paying for them one way or another. But I'm not.

I always have coins and cash in my pockets.

I normally don't carry cash at all unless I am on vacation.

I keep about $10 in change in my car for parking meters. The credit card readers are unreliable and the parking app costs extra because I don't use it enough.

Up to $4 an hour for street parking and $25 a day for garage parking in DC.

I collect all my change in a small old fashioned minature mail box and go to Coinstar when its full, get a gift card and there are no fees. Also FYI, Coinstar will spit back 1964 and older quarters that are made of silver.

Wow! Last time I was in DC, it was .75 an hour at a meter. And I had a lot of jobs downtown. Always had rolls of quarters. I'm sure glad I don't live there anymore.

A quarter gets me an hour on the meter to do what I need to.

Long trips, I keep five $1s, one $5, a $10 and two $20s in my wallet for small purchases, tolls, and cash only gas stops (Network down, ETC). I also keep $5 in quarters, $2.50 in dimes, and half a buck in nickels in the change holder in the truck for the above needs, and for vending machines if I can't get a drink or a snack somewhere other than a rip off machine. You never know when you might need some loose change.
Wow. You really have it all figured out.

I keep quarters and change in the desk for coffee.

In Europe I was carrying a lot of coins. As someone else mentioned, they have 1EU, and 2EU coins. Saves on printing cost on fast wearing paper money.

I also tend to use a debit card for most of my walking around purchases. But in also old fashioned enough to carry $20-40 in cash. Keep some coins in the ash tray as well for bridge tolls.

I keep $40 in my wallet in case the CC network is down. I usually have cash in my pocket but it is not a priority to have folding money in my pocket. I usually carry the two $20 bills in my wallet until they are threadbare. If I run into something I have to have $40 is usually enough to get the seller to hold it for me while I run to the ATM.
