Cash is having a resurgence as Britons use it to budget amid the cost of living crisis, figures show.

The return of notes and coins comes after the pandemic made the UK increasingly cashless. The Post Office said its branches handled a record £801m in personal cash withdrawals last month – an increase of almost 8% on June, and up 20% on the July 2021 figure of £665m.

We’d like to hear about people’s use of cash. Has it changed in recent months? Are you using it to plan your spending better? Are there other reasons why you’ve returned to physical currency? Or have you stuck with card and digital payments?
