The median salary in Switzerland is CHF 5823 per month. For men it is CHF 6248 per month, for women it is CHF 5040 per month. Apparently the gap has widened again for the first time since 1996. 
(Median salary for top banking management now reached CHF 58333 – per month!)
CHF 1 is about USD 1 is about EUR 0.66 is about GBP 0.59 right now.
- At the end of the month I get my account history from the bank. I double-check with the info in my ledger and add the missing entries. Ledger has a command that prints the running total for one account; that makes double-checking very easy.
- One of the accounts I have is the cash in my purse. I count the money in my purse and compare it with the balance of my cash account. I add a manual correction entry for the money that went missing.
- Something I’m not yet doing: Compare the accounts I have for my online bookshop and my online CD-shop with the information they have on their website about my past purchases.
Yesterday I spent about two hours doing the above. Yuck!
