Since the US Post Office lost an important payment I mailed about 15 months ago, I'm paying more bills on line .. and starting to make contributions that way too.
I keep a spreadsheet for the charities to which I donate, and usually only give twice a year to each of them (no matter how many solicitations they send). But depending on cash flow in a particular month (see topic about "Income Stream"), I may hold up on a contribution, if funds are a little tight.
So it dawned on me yesterday, after making a few contributions online, that it's a lot easier to track my expenditures & balance, when I send them by check, than have them accumulate in a charge account .. until I go thru the statement at the end of the period. The other alternative is to put in a dummy line item in my checking account, that will roll into the charge when it comes thru.
How do you handle your contributions?
