I always think I'm a tad obsessive about the cc's, but it's my habit to every few days categorize and enter all cc charges (hey, 2% cash back on everything so why not use it for everything?) from the receipts in Quicken. I then paste the balance over into the checking account register so as the month progresses I always know how much we have. Then when the cc bill comes in I reconcile it and would find any bogus charges. I do find them, but they're usually ones DW made and failed to give me the slip on!
So in essence, no need and no thank you to opening up all my history to a third party.
This community was started in 2002 as an alternative to a then fee only Motley Fool. The focus of the discussions is on topics related to early retirement and financial independence. The community is moderated to ensure a pleasant experience for our members.
