Times Change

I stopped by my bank this morning (as an aside, we really need a new back so I'm adding that to the list of other financial goals).

I needed a couple of check registers. The bank employee really had to think and then to hunt to find any. And then the ones he gave me were out of date, the little calendar on the back was 2007, 2008, 2009. Mr. bank employee told me I must be the last person on earth who balances her checking account(s).

Well Mr. bank employee, I balance my checking account(s) so I don't give your employer free money via overdraft fees.

I balance, but do it via Quicken. I think it is easier than the old fashioned way.

Keep up the good work.

wow. can't believe they said that. everyone SHOULD balance that's how we are responsible. I balance using the computer program, but I still write everything down in the register. I don't use debit cards, so its just checks and deposits.
