This is what I do and it's working out really well for me. Hope it works for you.
It looks something like this
Checking Balance $------------
Payroll Deposit $--------------
Savings Deduct $-----
Cash on Hand Deduct $-------
I will keep putting any expenses that I have to pay for that week and then add everything up and start the process all over again for the next week. I have about 4 months worth of this information on my excel sheet.
Let me know if you need me to explain anything..
Also if you have different tips pleas share.
