And going forward, each buy your own groceries and keep them separated--have your own shelves in the pantry, fridge etc.
That's assuming it's just a roommate and not a girlfriend. That's the easiest way to keep things sorted out and avoid money arguments with roommates.
For the current situations, just have her buy your groceries until she's paid back what she owes. Don't let her deduct stuff that she's buying for herself to eat.

Just get a dry erase board--or put a piece of paper on the fridge with a magnet.
But the amount of rent, amount of each bill (and due date on it) etc. so she knows to get you half the money in time to pay the bills.

But yeah, if you just want something to put up and split the bills then you can do the whiteboard thing or whatever so that you both know what you need to pay (total/2).

Excel is a quick & easy way to keep track of who owes what...I personally never had a problem with it.

You really need to take half-an-hour for your budget planning, if you are that worried about finances. A penny saved is a penny earned. That's the motto.

Well I just found the $250 check, woo! It was under the couch D: - That's half the rent. She also just gave me $15, half the water bill. How would I record this in Excel? She doesn't have $250 in her Checking, so I'll wait until she deposits more funds. I'm a nice guy and don't want her to get a fee for the check bouncing.
Do not just use excel. I started using quicken 9 years ago and haven't stooped. Once you get in the habit of recording everything in quicken you wont have this trouble
