    Well, usually when I get money from the bank, I tend to have at least $100 to $200 to last me a week or two. And I usually don't run out until the week is over with. And also, when I don't have any money on me, my girlfriend covers the cost of what we need since she gets paid every Saturday.

    So, do you carry a lot of money on you usually or do you tend to use a debit/credit card more than you use money?

    Have you ever lost your wallet? I've lost things that have been in mine. Like my access card to get through the gate in my neighborhood. I had to show them my license earlier to get in.

    Never lost my wallet but I've lost my phone before.

    Anyways, I usually keep about $25 on me, but I have had way more on me before.

    I usually carry around three R200 bills at all times, though I now just carry three $20 now that I'm in NY. And my Amex has a little more than R55 000 on it, not sure what that is dollars. I don't do the wallet thing, I keep all my money in the button pocket inside my bag, so, I only use the cash if they don't take cards though, I hate touching it, I feel so clumsy using it to pay. And I keep my card, and license in my pocket, never lost them before too.

    tldr; I love my Amex, I hate cash, I have a bag that I keep money in.

    I usually feel comfortable with $60-100 in my wallet. Just having $20 or less makes me feel like I'll run out soon. I use my card every so often when I'm running low on cash or just feel like using a card, but a lot of the time I like just paying in cash.

    I carry less than £20 with me. When I get rent out I go straight home.

    For emergencies, really.

    I usually carry £200 in my wallet. I use my debit card most of the time but if it doesn't work or a shop doesn't accept cards then I've got money on me. I keep about £500 on my debit card all the time and have the rest of my money at home. If I need to buy something expensive then I deposit it when I need it.

    Me too. It's one my many fears. I remember when one of my founds lost his license and someone brought it back to him.

    5 to 10 euros tops for me. I don't usually need anymore so that's the sum I keep with me.
