A Painful Question of the Day
Nicole Dieker

The way I manage finances, cash is “free money” to me as well, in that Mint has tracked it as spent already.

But spending cash is hard, too, because I like to have some on me for parking, transit, tiny purchases, food trucks that don’t take cards, etc. So I take out $100 every so often and the first $60 goes like *that* but when I’m down to my final $40 I definitely hesitate and spend it very slowly. Mostly because of the annoyance of running out and needing to find an ATM.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
