A Reason For Cash

April 13th, 2013 at 01:58 pm

Thinking about our cash needs lately, I realized that some of the cash needs arise from attending school events. Schools don't take checks or debit cards for admission to athletic events, or at their concession stands.

Today we are taking our daughter to her state music contest, where she will perform her flute solo first, then in a flute sextet about two hours later. We will be there about four hours over the noon hour. We could pack a lunch, but I haven't been to the store. So we will be getting some cash so we can get a little something to eat there.

I will make sure to not just grab $20, but more like $100 since we are now into a new pay period and I know my husband will want some cash. I don't plan to pay the flute teacher in cash the rest of this month. I will pay her by check and see how it goes.

Today, we will tip her accompanist $10 in cash, which is what I had in my wallet. Here is a case where we probably could have written a check, but if I have cash I'd rather not wait for someone to deposit a check.

I could go months without getting cash out in the past, but now it seems I have more reasons to use cash with one of them being high school events.

If you use cash with some frequency, what do you spend your cash on?

    We use cash for certain things...we eat out at a couple of local restaurants. One accepts cash or checks and the other accepts cash or credit cards. We also try to keep some cash available for when we go to flea markets. DH also pays cash for filling up the gas tanks and going to Aldi since we don't use a debit card and with Aldi it is cash or debit.

    Yes, sometimes cash at Aldi's. I prefer to give tips at restaurants as cash. They say the server will get the tip even if added to the bill on credit card, but I don't know.
