Do You Always Take Out a Certain Amount of Cash?

Most of you visit the ATM every week or every two weeks, and many of you opt to get cash back when making purchases instead of going to the ATM.

Whatever your method for getting cash is there a go-to amount that you take out every time?

I usually take between $100 and $150 out a fortnight for grocery shopping.

The amount of money I take out is my budget for the week.

I NEVER carry cash. Last time I went to the atm I couldnt remember my pin so now I cant get cash unless I go into the bank anyways. *Sigh* How did I forget my pin???

Between $50-$100 for incidentals. I will have to do cash more since I keep getting into trouble with the constant swiping of my debit card.

i do typically take out the same set amount from the ATM, unless i'm going somewhere or i have a specific purchase in mind that i need to make. this is how i manage my budget - if i can't spend the given amount over time then i can decide if my budget can be reduced, and if i spend more - then i have to take another look at my habits to determine what i'm doing wrong that week.

£80 per week. That hurts.

Yes, we do. We hardly use cash, so I withdraw a nominal fixed amount once a month. We use the cash to pay for little odds and ends.

I depends on what I have in the bank, what I need/want and such. Usually between 20-60 bucks

I like to have extra cash on hand at certain times, like when there is a string of hurricanes lined up in the Atlantic. But most of the year I hardly ever carry cash.

I mostly use my debit card for everything, but when I do withdrawal cash I always get $20.
