Another possibility for you Rebecca: There are financial management software packages that keep all of your information in one place. While I don't feel qualified to recommend any particular one, you can do a little research and read the reviews and select one that fits your needs..
Hi Rebecca, one thing that I have found useful is having each account tied to a purpose, a specific goal or reason for maintaining the account. This helps me keep a picture of why I have the account and what steps I need to take with it. Another thing that helps is selecting the institutions I have accounts with carefully, minimizing transfers between institutions which is more complex and confusing than transfers within an institution. Another way to simplify is to only do transfers once a month; for example, only moving money from savings into investment accounts on the first of each month. Then I only have to think through what I am doing once a month and it is easier to keep the big picture in mind.
