20. I try never to pay in cash

I very much love the wallet diet I went on years ago. I never carry cash or even a wallet anymore unless I am traveling long distance and before COVID traveled almost every week for work. I just carry my phone and in its case I have my driver's license, a credit card, and debit card. That is it. I think the last time I actually wrote a check for something had to be about ten years ago. I think the address on what dusty checks I still have somewhere is about four addresses out of date.

I gets points to use for travel or to redeem in other ways for every dollar I spend using my credit or debit cards, so paying in cash literally costs money.

I also challenge myself not to get cash when I travel to other countries and see how far I can get. So far I successfully went to Canada and Iceland without doing any currency exchanging. A couple I did still need to get cash in were Taiwan and Malaysia due to wanting street vendor food.

I definitely understand the point of the diminished ability for cashiers to be able to count out change though.
