i used to rely on online banking but then i got dinged with a few too many overdraft fees because people would take forever to cash my checks. so now i keep my check register updated with my receipts and double check my online banking statement. that way i ALWAYS know exactly how much money i have. and now i don’t get anymore overdraft fees!

I wish I did this.  I’m pretty careful about my spending but terrible at paperwork.

Online banking- but I keep receipts on bigger items just in case.

Wait, what is this “keeping track of money” that you speak of?

Ha. I use online banking, but man…

I use Quicken to organize all my financial accounts– it can update directly from my online banking, and I can pull reports about where we’re spending our money.  Love it.

Have any of you tried Mint.com?  I’ve heard some great reviews of it.

I actually keep my receipts and compare them to my online account, then toss the receipts.

I use the Moneywell Application Fiance bought for the mac.  It helps you create a budget and then you enter your paychecks, savings interest, and purchases into it.  It does help us manage our money, but I do have issues with it.  Money tracking is difficult business!
