Can you explain how you manage this now? That is, what functionality
you have that you might lose?

Commit often. You might commit this in 4 steps, depending on how
the work went. So you'd have 2 parts where the commit message
mentions work on FunctionalityA and 2 that mention BugB.

I don't understand how you'd do that without version control either.
But, there's
no reason to wait till the end of the day to commit - or until you
have completed
some number of changes. Commit with whatever granularity you want.
