    I seem to be the opposite on the contactless.

    Back in the day if you lifted £50 and spent a bit, you knew roughly how much you had left.

    Now you can ping it on the contactless and then when you check your balance a few days later you're like :eek1:

    If you have an issue with that, check your banking app more often. Or you could keep a spreadsheet to track your so ending. I started doing both when I first moved out from my Mum’s because I was crap with money and my Mum kept bailing me out. :giggle1:

    Using contactless in a boozer is a slippery slope, coincidentally the only time I’ve ever done it as after running out of cash I’ve lifted specifically for that night and that becoming apparent a few days later is a *’ sore yin!

    I seldom carry cash and that's been the case for nearly a decade I think - at best, 40 CHF in notes. Thinking finally to sign up for twint as its prevalence has increased in my area
