Hey do you check your wallet for money while you go out ?I do that always.Even if i put money in one hour ago i will check it once agian especially when i go out alone.Sometimes if i go for purachse stock to our stores i count the money once agian.Lol i always carry money more than i need becoz sometimes i cross the planned budget and buy more than i need.If i go out with our family i neglect to check it. Do you always check your wallet?Do share....

Yes I check the money I take. We should not get into trouble because of shortage of money so I always check if sufficient money is with me everytime I go out. Thank you mmtri.

O yeah! I do check my wallet before I go out!! I usually try to have extra money with me, but I do also have one credit card on hand, in case I need to pay for anything that is beyond the budget that I have. When I am with family, DEFINITELY I need to check my wallet before we go out!!! I usually take my parents out for dinner, and my dad have that habit of getting the most pricey in the list!! lol Cheers!

Yup! It's important to check your money in your wallet before going out and buy something. It would be embarrasing if you are in a store and your money is not enough to buy those stuffs. You have to consider this always where ever you go.

Hello mymytri!:-) I usually do not check my wallet for money as I mostly use my debit card for purchases. I do, however, check my wallet before leaving because there are many other important things that house in it. I only check it for money, if I am sure that I have to purchase something for which I'll have to pay cash but that's not very serious too as I can withdraw money any time from any ATM so I just check for the facility purpose. There have been times when I forgot my wallet or some other thing at home and I had to return to pick it up even if I have no use of it during the day. I just feel easy keeping it all the time, after all it's there for this purpose to hold every small important things in it:-) It's just an important part of my dressup.

I always have to check my wallet before i go out coz i am learned from this experienced before. I ride a vehicle going to town and when the driver asked me for my fair, i was so nervous and scared that i don't have something to give him coz i don't able to bring my wallet with my money, that is why he bragged at me. I walked for about 15 kilometers to our home from the town..hehe..very bad experienced.

Yup, always. Every time i go out, i check my wallet before going out. In case i do not have money, i go to the atm and withdraw some money. i make it sure that no matter wherever i go, i am not short of money. I take sufficient money with myself before going out anywhere...

Always!!!! It's a habit, just incase I misplace it, or if someone steals it. I just like to know how much money I have so I know I always have enough when I got buy something. Now I just use to debit card, and all my money goes there so noone can steal my money and if I dont carry cash I wont want to spend as much.

I always check my wallet. Who knows when and if you really need that money? Since I always use a debit card, I always make sure that I have my card with me, before I go out. And I always make sure I put the card back in my wallet, if I were to buy something off of the internet (at home).

I do not check my wallet for money as I do remember the amount of money I have when I last spent it. I check my wallet only when I was drawing money out from the wallet. I do not have much concern about having not enough cash as I pay most of my purchases by NETS.

hi mymytri, you have a beautiful picture selected by your name. i am having a bad habbit of not checking my wallet everyday. in the morning time i am generally in a rush , so it is skipped. once i had no money because i gave all big ones to my mother as she wanted it and then i forgot to put in some . so when i reached to my office and had to leave, i checked my wallet and was shocked. GOD what will i do now................ then i asked some bugs from a senior person who was with me and returned him back next day. i am having a very bad habbit of this.

Hi friend, I have the habit of checking twice whether i'm having the Wallet in with me when i go out. But i dont check, if there is money. Becoz i know very well how much money i have in my wallet after the last outing i had. Mostly i dont change plans, even if i change I use ATM for cash withdrawl, as i dont like using credit cards..

I always try to check my wallet. But I always have my ATM/Debit card in case of emergency. I actually prefer to use the card instead of carrying cash around. I just feel safer. I always stop at the store on my way to work for a coffee, so I always make sure I have a few dollars in my wallet for that. Small purchases I do with cash. I always use my card when buying a lot.

When I'm carrying cash I do frequently check my wallet to make sure it's still there just because I'm paranoid. But, I usually just use creditcards and so I don't check as often.

Dear mymytri, I always carry more money than what need because I never spend money unnecessarily but sometime my crazy brain create distort in my behaviour of spendig money. On that day if I do not have money I would get frustrated, bored and disappointed. Therefore to cope up with weird brain request I carry lot of money always. I do not count the money but I know approximately how much I am carrying. In case somebody rob my money I would not able to tell how much money I was robbed. Anyway, I have the habit of not counting the money from the very young age. Therefore I follow it. Further once I was pickpacked. Till date I did not how much I lost.

I am a impulsive spender so I rarely carry money, which means that I usually don't check for money in my wallet. I always carry my wallet in my back right pocket and I frequently check to make sure that it is still there. I have been doing that ever since I saw the old James Colburn movie, "Harry In Your Pocket" which was about pickpockets.

Do oyu know what I have a terrible habit of leaving the house and then remeber to check my purse when I'm halfway to wherever I'm going.... I did it the other day... I left the house to catch the train, got halfway up the road and thought I'd better check I had money for the train, but of course I didn't so I had to walk back into town (there is no cash machine at my nearest train station) and then had to wait an hour so I sat and waited at home, got hungry so had something to eat which mean't I missed the next train so I ended up not going to where I intended on going. Well at least I saved myself some money! :0)

I'm always checking my money too, mostly to make sure nothing has happened, like falling out or something. I don't really know why. I have one of those girl wallets that snaps and has the check book thingy. I have to be so careful with money because I have my husband and I budgeted just right. I really don't carry cash on me too much anymore and I use my debit card. I find that I do better that way than trying to carry cash. It's easier for me to spend cash if I have it on me.:P Not good.

Hello,mymytri,i will check my wallet everyday when i am going out to work to make sure i get some money and my train ticket is still valid so that i do not need to buy another one or i will need to bring more money for buying the new ticket. If i am going to shoppoing,i do not really care because i can use the bank card anyway.
