Do you put all of your purchases for the month on the same line in your check register, updating the total when you use it? Or do you just use "AMEX" as the name and make a new entry every time you use your card?

We also use Quicken and have just begun this strategy. I like the idea of keeping track in the check registry - just wasn't sure how to do it.
