My brother-in-law helped my Mom find a $500.00 discrepancy in her personal account over the holiday weekend. I probably balance mine about once a quarter and by “balance” I mean check to be sure I’m within $10 or so of what the credit union says. I tend to do it when more than a week has passed since I’ve written a check just to make things easier. Anybody out there lazier than I am?

I was really good about balancing (did it every month) until I started using a debit card about 3 years ago. I'm not good about recording those transactions and that makes balancing impossible, so I've given it up.

I'm SHOCKED! I'd've thought you'd to be meticulous.

I just activated my debit card. I guess I'll see.

I balance ours every month. I also keep up with all transactions and check them via on-line access every day. In these days of ATM fraud and such, I feel it neccessary.

On a side note, I've never used a debit card and never will.
