Do You Carry A Checkbook?

When I was a lad tagging after my dad, I noticed he'd carry a couple of blank checks in the top pocket of his bib overalls when he went to town.

When I grew up, I invariably had a checkbook in my hip pocket.

Now, I have to remind myself to carry a checkbook if I expect I'll need it.  It's almost all credit cards and sometimes cash.

I suppose some just aim their Apple Phone at you and move money that way.  I don't do that yet, although at home I pay as many bills as possible via online banking.  I used to send out 20-30 envelopes a month with check in them, now it's maybe half a dozen at most.

Has your money handling changed over the years and where are we going next?
