In say, 3 months time how many physical PAPER CHECKS do u write?

we just moved and I realized there's no purpose in me buying new checks... I haven't used them more than 5 times in the last 6mos or so. Anyone else?

  • Probably not even a handful. Most of our bills are taken out of our account automatically or we just make phone or internet payments and we use our debit card for most purchases.

  • Just the occasional check for my daughter's school; everything else is online.

  • Maybe one, if. In fact I was looking at my statements online, at work, yesterday trying to find my routing number (I can see copies of written checks) I had to look back 3 months!!! We have had the account for 5 years and still not used the first batch of checks we bought. lol

  • Maybe 25. Every two weeks, I write a check out of our business account to pay into our personal account. Plus 6 checks to insurance companies (they don't take electronic payments), and 3 to pay our mortgage, because we always write for over the amount, and our bank doesn't set up electronic payments to principal only. Lately we have had a lot of medical bills too, so that's probably another 10-12 there. All of our regular bills are paid electronically.

  • I write 2 a month for rent... That's it. Otherwise I don't write them at all! They just aren't safe enough...
