I have used a card. I really, truly, sincerely did not mean to use a card, but it was unavoidable. **sniff** Honest. **sniff** Summer internship funding forms were due! Study guides needed to get printed! It won’t happen again.
**Oh the humanity!**
But – to [...]More... →
Cardless people get a lot of them!
My wallet seriously weighs like 5 lbs right now. And of course, while paying for coffee today- I decided to unload some of my change and commenced digging through my purse to find 78 cents… the woman behind me audibly sighed as I searched for the last dime. [...]More... →
After paying my rent prior to the 4pm deadline and stashing my cash in a drawer, I was ready for the week. My initial anxiety about this contest is that I will feel as if I get some sort of “bonus” for using my credit card…yikes. After filling up my gas tank and being charged [...]More... →
I lasted precisely 12 minutes as a devoted cardless consumer.
I was assigned into the cashless group, but was willing to make the trade with another smackdown participant because I am pretty big proponent of carrying cash. I made sure that I paid rent, deposited my roommate’s portion of rent back in my account, paid [...]More... →

In a near vegetative state, I joined my wife in the living room to watch something on TV. Nothing was on, with [...]More... →
I went to Target this morning, spent $65. I am cardless this week, so I had been sure to bring enough cash along for what I planned to buy. (Target is, of course, notorious for shopping mission creep. My fixed amount of cash limited but did not completely eliminate this.)
My reason for writing is [...]More... →
To begin with, I had not used my atm card to take out cash in so long that I had forgotten my pin and had to have my bank send me a “reminder”. I don’t even have a bank in Somerville. I usually get cash by paying for other people with my credit card and [...]More... →
I picked my wife up from the airport, and I’m so used to zipping through the electronic tolls, I did it without even thinking. It was premeditated. I decided I would just ‘fess up here and say, –Yes it’s a wonderful thing that I can drive straight through toll booths without stopping, waiting, or scrounging [...]More... →
