Balancing your Checkbook
A checkbook register is like a diary of your checking account activity, and every box of checks you order from the bank will come with one. Use a checkbook register to record incoming and outgoing transaction in your account. Keeping track of all your account activity and maintaining a running balance will give you a good idea of how much money is in your account. You should reconcile your checkbook on a weekly or monthly basis. Be aware of the Balancing Do's and Don'ts.
