How do you spend: cash, debit or credit?
Almost always credit.

Do you bank online? How about use a financial aggregator (Mint, Wesabe, Yodlee, etc.)?
Yes, I have online savings accounts, and I use online banking from my brick-and-mortar bank as well. I don’t use a financial aggregator.

What recurring bills do you have set on autopay?
Mortgage, electricity, water, cell phone, Netflix, life insurance, disability insurance, and my American Express. Basically, almost all of them.

How are your finances automated?
Just through autopay.

Do you write checks? If so, how often?
Only if writing a check is my only choice. Probably once a month on average.

Where do you stash your short-term savings?
The same place as my long-term, and mid-term savings: ING.
