    I don't, I don't even know how to really. But I don't write checks either so I guess I'm okay. We pay with our checking account atm card, so no checks involved.

    that is nuts, you just add and subtract and check it twice, you will have serious problems if you cant do that!

    I do. Sadly though it's been a couple months...we also have access to our account online so I keep track of everything daily. I rarely use checks, but I have to keep track of all the debits somehow.


    My mom never knew how balance the checkbook either. When my dad dies idk how she's gonna do it. I remember staying with her for a week one summer & she saw me balancing the checkbook. She acted like it was such a huge deal. I was thinking, what's the big deal, addition and subtraction are elementary school things.

    I am completely neurotic about my book being balanced. Compliments of my ex husband. I trusted him to do it when we were married. BIG mistake! Ever since then, I just don't like the suprises. On a daily basis I know to the penny how much money I have in every acc't.

    No. I'm just like Meg. I really only write a check for rent, and a couple bills. I can mentally keep track of those, and I monitor our bank account online.
