    Back when I wheeled and dealed, enough to pick up an abandoned 172 on the ramp or participate in the ramp "clean up" after a tornado or hurricane. Now, enough to cover all the insurance deductibles.

    I tell my kids to keep six months of monthly expenses in the bank and at least 50 bucks in your pocket so the mugger doesn't get ****ed and shoot you for not having any money.

    Greenbacks in hand: usually <$20

    Liquid withdrawal? Six months total income replacement for our household with a trip to the bank + anything we’ve se aside for a big ticket purchase.

    FrEx: we will be replacing one of our vehicles in the next year; that will most likely be a cash purchase that we’ve set aside a specific amount above/beyond our six month savings.

    I don't carry much in the way of cash money, since I don't like to spend much in the way of cash money.

    Based on the responses here? It would cost more to feed us while captive. And really, who would pay a ransom for most of us? My wife would be in no hurry to get me back.

    Haven’t used paper cash in years (with a few very selected exceptions) so probably less than <$5 in small change forgotten in coat pockets or the like.

    even if I told you about cash I may or may not have on hand I certainly wouldn't tell you that I keep it in the third draw from the top on the right side of the guest bedroom dresser. I mean sheesh, how stupid u think I am?

    Enough that I can go play poker and not have to go to the ATM each time out...

    It is YOUR bank and settings on your account that sets those limits, not the ATM. I upped mine to $600.00 per account per withdrawal.

    That brought back a memory. When we were in college, my wife had a CUTE friend who lived in an apartment building where each of the 6 stories had an inside balcony open to the common foyer. She was going back home for the summer and asked us to check on the place, pay the bills, etc. After giving us the rundown, hugs, etc. she walks out to her balcony and is giving us goodbyes on our way out. We're at the front door 6 stories down when she hollers..."and don't forget, I'll leave the key under the mat for you and the money is in the top drawer of the dresser!"

    She was also the one who surprised us a few years later when she came out. It surprised her husband too. When he came home early one day.

    I keep them around just to make me feel wealthy. Still, it is 21 cents. I'll convert when it hits 50 cents.

    My wife sometimes has to do research with livestock. She was working a facility in Texas that sourced a few dozen cows for her project. She knew this facility also did similar work for others and she asked the owner in passing how many head of cattle they had at the moment. In his driest Texas drawl he said asking a cattle rancher how many cattle he has is like asking a man how much money he has. And he was right. Both questions would be rude in polite company.

    Overheard at a truck stop in Texas... little boy said to his father "look at all the cows in that truck".... father replied; 'they are not cows, they are cattle, and that is not a truck it is a rig... "Little boy... "what ever, it still smells like S----t"

    I'm thinking the opposite....if you need it...it will be more valuable. Plus, why park all that in a savings or checking account where it gains nothing?
