How Much Money (Cash) Do You Carry With You?

According to a new survey, the amount of cash you should have on you is … $200. $200?!?!  I'm not even close to having that in my pocket.

Why $200?

Because it’s enough to handle a standard emergency – like if you’re at dinner and your credit card gets declined. 

Not surprisingly, not many people carry around that much cash. 

A survey from Money magazine found that 42 percent of people carry no more than $40 in cash, 

  • 30 percent carry between $41 and $99,

  • 17 percent carry $100 to $199,

  • 11 percent carry $200 or more.
