I’ve mentioned before that I keep a checkbook register and balance it, to the penny, religiously. Well, I was down to my last register. Since I do most of my bill paying online, I rarely use manual checks anymore. In fact, I’m still using up checks with our old address on them. We moved 3 1/2 years ago and I’ll bet I don’t get through them all before we move again!
Anyway, I needed a new checkbook register and was looking for somewhere to get them cheap or free. That’s when I stumbled upon the concept of using an Excel spreadsheet instead of a physical register. Excel comes with a template. Or there are many you can download for free. I just keep it up on my computer at all times. It’s easy. Easier than a physical register.
No more calculator.
I can’t believe it took me this long to make the transition….
