How much cash do you carry with you when you are going out

Crime rate is going up, and we intended not to carry too much cash with us. A friend of mine, who always carries a lot of cash with him when we hanging out. At least some hundred bucks. We warned him, not to show any of them in the public place. We rather carry less cash, and a credit card or debit card. What about you, do you carry a lot of cash with you?

I don't carry a lot of cash around with me. I typically go to the bank before going out anywhere and take out just what I think i'll need and then I always have a credit card for back up incase something happens. I don't feel safe carrying a lot of cash with me these days. It's sad, but true!

I agree with you, never carry too much cash with you.

No, I don't carry a lot of cash on me, mostly because my 18 year old daughter can smell money and always manages to hit me up for some if I have any. When my husband and I go out...or when he or I or both of us are shopping...we prefer to use the bank debit cards or the credit cards because it's more convenient and easier to keep track of our spending that way. The only time either of us has a lot of cash on us if when we're making a bank deposit for the business. When doing that I normally use the bank's drive through service.
