"I just gave the begger what money I had with me." Hi, I've learnt "what money" = "all the money", but why do you use "with me" here? Is "I gave the begger what money I had" ambiguous? Thanks!

Hi you can say, I just gave the beggar all the money that I had.

Without saying "with me", you are strongly implying the money on your person but it is possible you mean all of your money including what is in your bank accounts, etc. Using "with me" provides clarification and is more precise.
