I have to post anon because I am clearly the biggest idiot on planet earth! I tried balancing my grandma's checkbook for her and she wants it done to the penny. I'm looking at her statement (two accounts) and don't know where to begin. She earns interest each period which throws it off because they show half the interest accrued and then on the next statement, the other half shows up and I don't know what amount has been credited and honestly, I never balance mine and I'm never overdrawn but I'm not a perfectionist. Okay, so, how do I learn to do this? I know, throw a shoe at me, it's that bad!

Go into the bank and have them get you started.... and DONT be embarrassed they wont laugh at you.
btw... I dont do it to the penny. I always round up to the closest dollar... nice when all that unaccounted change adds up to surprise dollars!!

If you don't feel comfortable doing this ask the bank where your Grandmothers account is if they will do it. Sometimes they will. Otherwise you'll need to learn fast. And yes, we have 4 accounts that I balance to the penny every month in addition;I do my parents account and they live 3 hours away from us and I do this over the phone with my mother every month. And I MAKE her balance to the penny.
