Cash? Turn the way back machine to 1980, Mr. Peabody. I honestly can't remember the last time I paid "cash" for anything. I've had the same couple of $20 bills sitting in my wallet for months (years?)- just in case I buy something at some odd ball anachronistic place that doesn't take credit cards.

Why use cash? Anyone with discipline is much better off using credit cards (and paying them off in full each month) and getting cash back.
