    Everyone be honest. Do you HAVE to pay with exact change (to the nickel or penny) when paying cash?

    Do you find yourself digging into your pocket and getting a fuzzy feeling when your silver and copper palm blooms with THE number?

    You are not alone.

    If I pay cash, I pay in bills and the change goes into my change jar. I never pull change out if my pocket except to put it in the jar. That said, I usually just pay with my card and move along.

    Nope, I pay cash but usually with bills and expect the cashier to make change- I have lived in countries that expect you to have the correct change or at least close to the actual price in change- they look at you funny when you don't carry any change and they have to actually figure out the difference (always with a calculator if they don't have a newer register) I throw my change in a jar.

    Once I break my folding money into coins it's as good as gone.

    Speaking of OCD, if the tab comes out an odd number, e.g., $11.27, I'll check to see if I've got an extra single, and if so, I'll start digging for the .27 cents.

    If possible, I'll pay $21.27 so I can an get a single $10 bill back as change.

    Cash? A few things have happened since I stopped paying for things in Cash-
    • The price of a gallon of gas-When it went crazy in the early 2000s I would be carrying wads of cash to fill my tank!
    • Travel-I didn't like having a lot of cash on me in crowded areas.
    • Getting paid monthly and direct deposit-The debit card has become king!
    Used to be you could negotiate a better price with local providers
    with cash. Not so much any more.

    I always pay with exact change. Plastic works quite well for that. :D

    Cash has become a fairly foreign substance with me. The bills are dirty and the coins weigh me down. In fact I'm willing to bet your toilet is actually cleaner than most singles 1955. :lol:

  14. I pay cash for small amounts like that and do the same thing, try to get back a round amount. It doesn't always work: once I handed over extra so that I'd get back $5 and the cashier handed back five loonies.

    I usually fish out the coins ahead of time, so that it's faster than using a card, anyway.

    For me, THIS x eleventy billion. If I go get a coke, which costs $1.58, and I pay with $2.00, the change goes into my pocket. Even if I run another errand, and the bill is $xx.42, I will pay with bills and put the change into my pocket. This way, in a few months, I collect enough for a new pedal or gear. I've tried saving long term, but that doesn't work out. I have a clear plastic bucket, it's small and sits in my armoir. I used a hole saw to cut a hole in the lid. It's maybe 6" in diameter and 8" tall. Theoretically, it should nearly $1,000, but I've only ever saved up to a couple hundo, then hit the change machine at the bank. NOW, however, ALL the local banks have removed their change machines, and I have to roll that chit by hand. So now, I usually don't save more than a $100 in change before I roll it and count it. Oh, that reminds me: I bought a used Fulltone Soul-Bender last night, and I gotta spend the night rolling change. Dang it!

    My favorite is when they give the change a little shake in the palm after they pull it out.

    If I could only spell antediluvian, yes.
    When acquiring figgy pudding. Mostly pennies. Or hay pennies. Wooden nickels. All natural.

    I like when the drive through attendant puts the coins on top of the bills, on top of the receipt so they slide off and fall to the drive through pavement. I wonder how much they collect at the end of the shift? At least I don't have to worry about getting out to pick it up.
