Recently converted from Quicken to Mint.com and am finding it a bit disorienting...

1. How do I keep track of checks before they clear?
2. What do I do with my monthly statements now?
I've always used Quicken like an electronic checkbook register: enter my withdrawals and deposits as I made them and reconciled with my statement at the end of the month. Obviously, this is much more labor-intensive than it should be in the internet age and that's why I'm switching. That and the fact that Quicken on the Mac is *awful.* I think I just need to get used to account balances being a couple days behind what I've actually spent, and make sure I leave a comfortable financial cushion, but I am wondering how others have made this transition.
