Cash-only spending plan?

My goal is to pay off all my debt and not use credit cards. I know I'll need one for things like airline tickets, but I want to only keep one card and only use it for things like that. Ideally, I'd love to be able to pay cash for everything.

A new article in this week's Dollar Stretcher is about just that! It gives 10 reasons why you should be on a cash-only spending plan. I think the only thing they could have added to it is that when you are spending cash, you are WAY more conscious of where your money is going. Even just tracking my spending and trying not to use the credit cards makes me conscious of where the money is going.
