Money and banking in Haiti

To those of you currently living in Haiti, how do you manage your daily cash needs?

With reports of extra long lines at the banks, and security issues such as the recent murder of a canadian citizen by robbers after he exited a bank, how do you go about securing cash for day to day transactions?

As expats, a lot of you probably have your pay deposited directly into a foreign bank account, and although debit and credit cards are widely accepted at shops and restaurants, cash is still the preferred method for most local transactions.

What is working for you and what would you recommend to others?

I would appreciate any feedback.
