I appreciate that you find peace of mind sticking with cash.

I pay for things on the CC and never think about it again, because the bill gets paid automatically each month. Never have to make a trip anywhere to get cash, never find myself without enough cash, don't have to deal with change, etc.

If the government finds it interesting how much TP our household uses, they are welcome to data mine those records.

... my wife's PA program cost $10k every 3 months, and I paid that on a 2% CC because there was no discount offered for paying cash. While everyone else was paying interest on their student loans, I was receiving an $800 discount every year.
