Or you can also say in other currency of your country. I currently have $7 in my wallet. It may be less in US conditions, but it is enough money for a day in my country. Because in my country the dollar has risen a lot compared to our national currency I have $251 in my bank account. This money is enough for me until I get paid again.

2 * $100 bills

The $100 bills are because I did some work under the table a while back and got paid in cash. So I carry a few around to pay for stuff like groceries that I normally use a card for.10
There isn't a single place I could use physica money for where I can't pay with my phone or card. And all of them prefer I pay electronically. I sometimes keep a 100 or so as backup but its typically pointless. We're very much cash-free by now.18
I normally carry about £30 at least. Cash is handy and gets me out of some practical situations.11
I usually keep about fifty in my wallet. That way if there is ever an issue with bank cards, power outages, etc., I have the cash to put some gas in the truck to get me home and/or something at the grocery store.10
Not a wallet, but I have exactly 12 dollars in my pocket.
I always try to carry a little change at work for emergencies or just to have on hold in case I need something.10
I've got 20 dollars in my pocket... and about to pop some tags

$3. Rest in my account. Better this was because If I had all...$190, i would definitely have used it all by now.10
I have US$35 in my wallet, but I rarely use cash. I almost always use a credit card, and pay it off at the end of the month.10
In cash nothing
In the bank accounts (cards) about £200 not counting credit
As a cheque almost £6k10

Kind of a lot. 50,000 yen just checking right now (~$381.59 USD). But I'm not rich. I'm just lazy. I don't like to find myself out of money when I go out so I keep a lot in there, and I've only been pickpocketed or lost my wallet a number of times. Also Japan is maybe more expensive place overall. If I get super drunk and can't get home, I'm not gonna make it with $7. It's more like $30 usually.
I also put at least 5,000 yen beneath my shoes when I go out in case I get beat up or pickpocketed since I don't want to walk like 20+km back home (actually did that three times and not just a straight line even though 20km sounds relatively short -- I was getting lost and drunk the whole time and it took me over 8 hours to get back home -- and once while it was snowing and later raining, and that was the most awful experience). So I like to carry a lot of cash with me including in my shoes.
One thing though if I may suggest -- I wish I had responsible parents who taught me this way before I learned it the hard way -- no matter how little you're making, you can put a percentage aside in that account. Don't spend it if you can help it unless it's real emergency, and real emergency is not like your friends have a party next weekend but like more like you are diagnosed with cancer. Even a measly $20/month means $240/year you grow your savings. That's all you have to do it put a little bit each month into this and forget about it and you will be so much better prepared for everything that is to come.

People in Japan seem to carry a lot of cash around. I had to because the first time I went there it was near impossible to find a place that took US credit cards or an ATM that took US bank cards. Don't know if that is better now.
@zagor Still sucks that way!
