How much pocket money should I bring to Turkey?

I'm spending a week in Turkey later this month (a few days in Istanbul, then moving down the Aegean coast, and then back to Istanbul-- yes, I'm a lucky lady) and I have no idea how much cash in lira I should bring with me. My hotels and most of my meals are already paid for. I'll definitely need to pay for a ~20 km cab ride to the airport on my last day in Istanbul. I'm not big on souvenirs, but might like to pick up some postcards or have the occasional meal outside my hotels. I'd like to change all the cash I'll need before leaving the States. Any advice?
