Well, I guess I am trying the "cash lifestyle" for a few days. I don't like it already, LOL. I canceled my card yesterday morning, while I was at work. On the way home I made my usual Thursday stop for Dh's burger and fries from the little mom and pop burger joint. I started to hand her my debit card and went "oh crap - I just canceled it this morning! Can you take a check?" She was like - "oh don't worry about it - you come here so often - just pay it next time." I did remember I had $7 (the total was $8 and change) so I gave her that and told her I'd pay the rest next week. I felt so stupid!
I figured I'd just write a check for my grocery shopping this weekend, but then when I wrote my mom a check last night for my car payment it was my last check - my very last check! I dug through my desk drawer and found some checks that have my correct routing and bank account number, they just have a different bank name (from before they got bought out). They would probably still work, I'm sure. I know I used them for awhile before I got the checks with the correct bank name on them. I think I'll just go to the bank today and get out the cash I need for the weekend.
Cash only would really not work to well for me. I am too used to my debit card. I use it for everything and rarely have cash on me. Honestly, it would drive me nuts to have to pull into the gas station each time and actually have to go in there and give them cash and either not fill up quite all the way (cuz you can never guess exactly how much) or have to give them more and then make another trip back inside to get the change. I have no patience for that :-)
I just want my debit card back!
