Inexpensive, But Useful Tool


This is a picture out of my homemade checking account register. A couple of years ago I grew tired of using a standard bank issued check register because it seemed like I was always having to replace it because I filled it up so fast. 

What I did was take one of those 70 sheet spiral notebooks, which I bought on sale for ten cents and decided to use that instead. I started in December of 2008 and just today finished filling up the last page. Two and a half years worth of records in one easy to find place, and it has been a wonderful tool for me to use. 

When I get a receipt that I need to register, I simply place it in my wallet and then when I get home I go to my desk and pull out my notebook, which I keep open to the current page and on a clipboard on top of my desk. I love the fact that I don't have to constantly change it out all of the time, which makes my life easier. :)
