balancing my checkbook

Saturday, March 06, 2010

just like our bodies

what goes in for calories must come out in exercise

checkbook--i got scolded for only doing mental math on my check register and that person sat with me for two months now as my check statement came in, because I was so rusty at it

the reward--for the first time in the past few years, there was a check that wasn't deposited the month or the one following it.

if I hadn't heeded the advice and the person finally decides to cash that check, I'd be in financial woes.

At the deli where I work, I'm so surprised that people don't take their receipts or write their expenses down.....I've become more aware of that

    I don't write much checks anymore, but I DO use carbonless copy checks. I pay cash with almost everything.

    emoticon We learned a while ago to write everything down. We had a few mistakes that were close calls.

    Taking control of your finances is an important goal. I myself always take receipts and reconcile my statements every month...it's just another way of practicing discipline. emoticon

    I learned a long time ago to use Quicken for all my persoanl accounts. I learned the program when it first appeared on the scene in the form of the old five and one half inch floppy disks when floppy disks were floppy. It was so simple to use and continues to be a simple and easy to use as it first was. You can even use it for a small business. I religiously enter all transactions in our several accounts. At the end of the month, reconciliation is a breeze. I can also dump all the formation at the end of the year into Turbo Tax and complete my income taxes and efile everything in one sessions, getting my refund direct deposited within days. It is so simple and easy that it is a no brainer and a huge help to us.
