    When I was in the mob we were often told that we had to have at least one days pay in our wallet or we could be charged . In civy st. I used to carry £50 and my cards , the cash was for cabs tips etc.
    Now that I am retired I only carry ten quid a fiver and coins . So how much do you carry about with you on average ?

    Nothing. Debit card in wallet, if I need cash blag it of Ms Skid2
  4. About £10 - £15 if a work day. Other days it depends what I need, petrol, shopping, new pair of jeans and I take it out the hole in the wall. I hate using cards (unless credit card to protect a purchase, flights, internet spending) and cash will always be king!
  5. Depends how long it's been since I hit the ATM, anywhere from 20-300 Euros.
  6. On a work day a few quid in shrap for the coffee machine. Days off not even that, just my DD card should I need it.

  11. About £4-5 in change unless I'm going somewhere that specifically needs more.
  12. At the most £20 at the beginning of the week which gets whittled down as the week progresses. Petrol etc gets bought on the debit card.

    Are you asking so you know which one of us to mug?
