Okay, you may not like math any more than we do.
But this is some math you've got to understand, unless you want to really mess up your checking account, and your credit.
So, here's what we'll do:
- First, learn how to keep track of the additions and subtractions to your checking account in your "checkbook register."
- Second, learn how to "reconcile" your checking account. When you reconcile your account, you make sure the figures you get from your bank matches the figures you've placed in your checkbook register.
- Don't worry. This is easier than it sounds.
Off you go!
