Rarely.  However, I do like to have a couple dollars on me - just in case  :D

I like to have some cash stashed in my wallet -- just in case -- too.  I do not want to become totally cashless.
 I like being able to use cash for small purchases and for kids, grandkids, garage sales...
I still use checks for several monthly bills.  I mostly use my cash back credit cards and pay them off each month.

I still use cash pretty much mostly. Credit is used for large purchases by me. Honestly I don't care for the cards in general when shopping rather have cash in my hands just feels weird with plastic in my hands.

We seldom use cash, although I always have some "mad" money stashed away in my purse.  That's what we called it when I was growing up.  Not sure why!

I have some pocket money, but more and more lately I've been using my phone for no contact purchases at stores.

I use cash when buying gold or rare coins. My wife and I usually keep cash on hand in case we are in a position that requires a tip/gift like restaurants, valet, Uber and homeless people. Everyone likes getting cash on the side and get taxed so heavily on credit card tips. Even thought servers are, supposedly, only required to report eight percent of their sales, one hundred percent of their credit card tips are reported and often times they are unable to pay the taxes on those because their wages are much lower. Uber drivers have expressed near undying gratitude for cash tips even though most of their fare is consumed by mileage expens (and approximately thirty percent is kept by Uber). Homeless people can always use a buck and I include a snack as well (protein bar, nuts, dried fruit, beef jerky-whatever I have available).

I use cash the most because you don't have to worry about hackers getting into my accounts that way.
Plus, it's not as complicated

The problem with cash right now is the current lack of coins. I see at so many places out there with signs at the register stating there is a shortage, so making change is problematic.
