I like Cash, It makes me feel less monitored, more free. I believe cash should always exist as part of a monetary system for that reason. Also, if I don’t have readies, I really shouldn’t be trying to spend money I don’t have. *rewrites gift list*. Instead of taking old penny jars to the bank (ages) or supermarket “penny recycler” (which charges a percentage) I now take handfuls at a time to buy small items at the machine checkout at quiet times, and feel no shame or guilt.
