Never having had much cash until recent years, I find I LIKE having a bit of it around and paying for stuff in cash.
For several years my wife and I were putting a lot away into our safe when we didn't have a lot of expenses. After 3 or 4 years we had quite a bit put away. Thern we bought a house. Not so much in the safe these days. But enough to handle whatever we need. A nice feeling!
Not gonna mention a #, not looking to attract thieves-though their efforts could be termed suicidal. I'm a good shot and have a LOT of guns handy!
