Since the coronavirus put New York under lockdown, I’ve completely changed my buying habits.
I haven’t swiped my credit card in at least a month, relying on online payments and Apple Pay with curbside pickup.
I actually prefer paying this way, and I don’t see myself paying with cash or card anytime soon, although I know this isn’t an option for everyone.
The coronavirus has changed just about every part of my daily life. The biggest change is that I now work remotely, and rarely leave my house. But when I do leave my house, it’s also changed my relationship to money. Namely, I almost never touch actual cold, hard cash anymore.
