Are you paying cash or credit or a combination of the two?

We don't do credit cards because we don't want the bills in January so everything will be cash or debit card.

Do you use your debit card online, or do you have a different card that you use for safe online purchases?

We use the debit card but are very particular of where we use it.

I'm so afraid to use my debit card online. I just worry that the number will fall into the wrong hands.

I have a paypal account too, but don't often have more than $10 or so in it, so I don't use it for anything & just transfer the money into my checking account once a month or so.

Since my PayPal isn't linked to my bank account I can't transfer money but I can request a check periodically and pay a fee.

That's a good idea too. I consider anything in PayPal to be fun money anyway.
