      I am so very bad at this myself. I try to never write checks (I only have 2 bills that still need a check written) and to use cash/debit for everything else. Then I have my bank account set to open when I turn on my computer so it reminds me to take a look.

      I keep my register at the computer and just write in the pending transactions (they hit online minutes after I make a purchase) and it helps to keep me up-to-date.

      I also have my basic budget in an excel spreadsheet so when I open checking, I open the budget right away and highlight in red what has been paid, so I can see quickly what is left and do the math to make sure I’m on track.

      The whole process takes less than 5 minutes every morning.
