Definitely a case of irreconcilable differences...

I think it's non-reconcilers comming out of the woodwork....before the poll, I was ashamed to say "I don't reconcile".....but not anymore........looks to me like our percentage is gaining

Re: Do You Reconcile Your Checking Account?

The non-reconcilers are subconciously nervous about bouncing a check. This makes them agitated and more likely to post.

Re: Do You Reconcile Your Checking Account?

I don't technically reconcile... I use the online banking and know what is going in and coming out...

If anything looks funny, I see it right away...

Re: Do You Reconcile Your Checking Account?

I reconcile every time a transaction is made involving my checking account. Sometimes this is twice a day, other times it's once every 2 weeks.
