On a monthly basis? How closely do you watch your finances? Do you trust your bank and the use of credit and debit cards and just hope the balance is correct?

I do online banking, so it's less trouble balancing a checkbook... plus i have a great memory, so I remember when I use my bank card... and I hate checks, so I don't use checks!

I check our checking account online daily. The only thing that I use a check for is to pay for  the rent. Everything else, I either call to make payments over the phone or is set up to come out of our account every month. I ALWAYS check to make sure that they do and for the right amount.

I think it's becoming abnormal to do them. I'll be honest, I'm an auditor, I've seen millions of bank and credit card statements so I believe if there is a chance that the bank is wrong it's incredibly small so I tend not to worry about it. But if a client doesn't do a reconciliaiton I will write them up, lol. I guess that's wrong of me.

Other. I check my accounts online every few days and make sure everything adds up. I don't call the number and go through transactions on the checkbook register like my mom does, though.

I have online banking, and I check the balance and do all that mess daily.

i used to work at a bank, and I have seen crazy things happen.

I just do everything online. I don't like receipts and clutter.

My wife does. I just keep up with what's in there so I don't over spend.
