How do you spend: cash, debit or credit?
Usually credit, sometimes cash, almost never debit.

Do you bank online? How about use a financial aggregator (Mint, Wesabe, Yodlee, etc.)?
I bank online but don’t use a financial aggregator with any gusto.

What recurring bills do you have set on autopay?
Just about all of them. I have to think to remember the other ones!

How are your finances automated?
Direct deposit, automatic bill-pay, transfers from checking to online savings.

Do you write checks? If so, how often?
Very rarely, but my wife writes them much more often! Wink

Where do you stash your short-term savings?
Checking or savings account.
