I write checks for water/sewer, garbage and the kids lunch at school, otherwise everyhing else is paid online.

Do you still write checks or are you an online bill payer?

I pay the rent and the electric by check.  Everything else I pay online.

For some things. We have 2 checking accounts and I ran out checks for one and am almost out for the other. They've been ordered!

We pay rent with a check. Everything else is online--except my car payment, but we pay that by phone with our debit card.

Oh no. I hate when I run out of checks. I've done that a time or two.

You don't worry about giving your debit card number over the phone?

I don't even own a check book. Now that I'm thinking about it, I might need to invest in one lol.

Very, very rarely.   A book of checks and a book of stamps last us forever anymore.
