Do You Keep Up Your Check Book Stub? One of the many advantages of paying all of your bills by check is the record you can have on your check book stub. It takes just a moment to fill out the stub. This gives you a record of your transaction and prevents anxieties about whether your account is running too low. You always save money by knowing the exact state of your finances. If you are not keeping up your stubs regularly, try doing it for a few weeks and see what a satisfying habit it is.
