Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Aloha Friday: Money!


My Question:

Do you balance your checkbook?

My husband is on the ball with this. He sometimes shows me and I do think it's very important to do this and will eventually show our kids how to when it's time. I think it will also be a good way to talk to the kids about financial matters.

Kailani says "In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response."

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link on Kailani's blog. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

Happy Friday!

  1. Yep. I'm the "money manager" at our place-- and it is never too soon to get the kids started on balancing their own bank accounts. My son started in kindergarten. It is fun to look back in his bank ledger and see his handwriting back then and how big he used to write the numbers :D

  2. Let's just say I always know how much money I have and keep very close track. I have to. I'm too scared not to know!

  3. I NEVER balance my check book on paper but I have it in my head. I know crazy! When I'm old and gray, I'm not sure what I'll do :)

  4. Hubby manages most of our money while I tackle the day to day money. In both cases, yes, we do balance our checkbooks.

  5. well I try too but I am not very good at it.

  6. Not really. I used to, but I don't really write that many checks anymore anyway. I pay mostly with my debit card and pay everything online. I basically guesstimate how much I'm spending vs. how much I have, and I check my balance online.
