Balancing Your Checkbook in Our Apartments for Rent in Mount Dora
In today’s world, it seems like everything is done online. Even balancing your checkbook and checking your bank account balance can be done online these days. Although, there are distinct advantages to balancing your checkbook the old-fashioned way and comparing it to your online bank statement – and it’s easy to do while in our apartments for rent in Mount Dora.
To balance both your checkbook and your actual bank statement, follow this advice:
- Start with your online bank account statement. Check the balance displayed on the screen.
- Now move to your checkbook, and look at your records of the checks you have previously written. Compare these checks with the checks that your statement shows have been cleared.
- Subtract the amount of recently written checks that have not cleared from the balance displayed online to find the actual amount of money you will soon have available in your account. Your bank statement will not show that a check has been written until it is cashed or deposited into another account, and this can take several days, if not weeks. Thus, your bank statement may not always be completely current, and it can give you the illusion that you have more money available than you really do if you have forgotten about recently written checks.
- Check your bank account often so that you can know when checks clear and are reflected in your bank statement.
Abiding by these tips will help keep you informed about how much money you have and also help keep you from having to pay those costly overdraft fees.
