    The old fashioned stamp-and-envelope method? Online bill pay? Auto debit from your checking?

    Or maybe you just don't pay them!

    Forgot to say: I do everything online but only my car insurance is an auto debit. I prefer to have "control" over when a payment is submitted.

    I can't remember the last time I paid for something with a check. Sometimes I'll use them if I owe somebody a few bucks and have no cash, but that's about it.

    I don't even have a physical checkbook anymore. Almost all online bill payment, a few bills (cell phone, internet) I pay with a credit card. I don't pay anything "auto-debit".

    Online/e-check. Never do the auto option for anything. It's important to have the discipline to manage several different payments and scrutinize any inconsistencies.

    Student loans get an auto debit.

    Rent is by physical check.

    Everything else is paid online.

    Rent and a couple of other fixed amount bills are auto-debit. Nearly everything else is online billpay. Write one check a week to the housekeeper.
