I used to get into incredible snarls with my checkbook (in fact, I had a checking account closed because of bounced checks - I was never sure how much money I had in there), because I *just hate* paper work of any kind. I used Quicken for a while, and while it was better than what I had been doing, it still drove me nuts. So I don't use Quicken anymore - I budget/track expenses using the envelope method. As for my checkbook -I have online access to my account, and I use duplicate checks. Every week or so, I log into my checking account, with my checkbook in front of me. I mark an "x" on the corner of each check that has cleared. I add up the amounts on the checks that have not cleared, and subtract that from the balance shown on my checking account. Easy, accurate, and if an error pops up, on my end or theirs, I am on that puppy right away. Life is much better now.YMMV.
