Can you live without a checking account?

I have a savings account at 5/3 bank and my checking plus 2 credit cards through chase bank. I am a homeowner, I own a condo.

The only time I use an ATM card is to pull cash out since there isn’t a branch near my house but there is a chase ATM machine. With these new ATM fee’s and all plus I heard chase was going to start charging monthly fee’s on checking. I’m done with banks I think. I’m thinking about just opening up a savings account at a credit union, getting rid of chase and 5/3. Question is, can I have my pay check direct deposited into a savings account? Can I still do online bill pay with just a savings account? I never write checks. Heck, I’m trying to wean myself off credit cards too except for big purchases or going out of town.
