Poll: How Do You Keep Track of Your Finances?

So, how do you keep track of your finances? Do you use a specialized piece of software like Quicken or are you a spreadsheet kind of person? Or maybe you simply fly by the seat of your pants and just hope you don’t bounce a check? However you do it, I want to know.

As for myself, I’m torn. As much as a computer geek I am, I have a difficult time sticking with a software for any length of time. I’ll get the urge to download and set everything up in Quicken, only to find that a few months go by and I’m only updating it once a month. I would like to use some sort of software diligently, but I really only keep info in Quicken for checking up on the basics, otherwise it is a balanced checkbook and just regular monitoring of accounts online. I think for the new year, one of my resolutions will be to make more detailed tracking a priority.
