Don't be harsh. Not everyone has the same profile the average ARRSEr, i.e. a multi-millionaire.
As long as it is not Dunkin Donuts.I love a good rummage around a flea market / garage / car boot sale. You never know what you'll find! I was brought up on them by my dad.
I also donate a lot of stuff that I no longer need - we have sites like Freecycle that let you give/take stuff. Got rid of a Hoover today - it was still working, and would be a waste to chuck it away so I'm glad someone could get some use from it.
@Steamboat - Not going to the local McDonalds any time soon; can I count a cup of instant as the exchanged brew instead?

The Salvation Army or the Goodwill is our go to. But yes you can find some cool stuff at garage sales or flea markets.
What did you use when all the ATM's crashed a few years back?I can’t use it remotely, I might manage to deposit it into the bank if I find the right kind of cash point
Nobody wants to be paid cash, I don’t want to give anyone cash
Pre - Covid I only used paper money in fields at festivals & shows or as emergency pocket money
I have cash because I buy people’s shopping for them, and occasionally have been paid back in cash
Its just going to sit in my wallet
Follow the reflection.
One never knows what you can find. I hit the jacket pot at Marv’s when some guy was selling ammo at the shop for cheaper than the stores but he was making a decent profit.Hey herself goes to the resale shops as well, she's got plenty of clothes from them. Have to admit I like looking around some resale shops and pawn shops when I'm out on my own.

Which is why I always keep a reserve of cash. Notes are accepted everywhere. Cards get blocked for various reasons, things electronic crash at times.Local CoOp was cash only this afternoon, in my ten minutes queuing (self service was on the fritz) 3 big piles of shopping put to one side with a promise to return as soon as they could.
A habit I picked up many years ago, when I couldn't be sure of having enough petrol money for the month otherwise.
I always keep enough cash for a full tank (a habit from when I could never be sure I'd have enough to see the end of the month, various reasons ...) and always a 1/4 tank in the car minimum (enough for 3 trips to/from work) - a hang over from being on call - enough always to get to work and back twice at stupid o clock and still enough to get to work the next day and then refuel.From town to our home is about 50 miles on way, about half way in either direction is petrol station that has been run by the same family since the 1930's. The guy that owns it is cash only, he doesn't have a card reader or an ATM and he still seems to do very well out of it.
