A friend and I have different definitions of balancing a check book. I thought there was only one way, apparently not??

okay everyone has their own way of doing it, there is the once a month way when you get your statement normally on the back of your statement there is a worksheet and instructions. here is a link its alot easier then typing it all :) http://financialplan.about.com/od/banking/ht/BalCheckbook.htm I googled "how to balance a checkbook " and found multiple sites so there may be other ways listed but this one is the most commonly used. My checkbook would never balance because i round up all my outgoing amounts to the nearest dollar so we have emergency money at the end of the month and it keeps me from over drafting :) I also round all deposits down to the nearest 10th so say I deposit $363 I enter the deposit in my checkbook as $360, at the end of the month I have had over $100 extra it is really nice when things get tight. So I keep two check registers on my computer one with my actual amounts and one with the rounded amounts.
