The point of having a standard way of keeping track of cash is accountability.


  1. An auditor (someone outside Free Geek looking over our books)
  2. A bookkeeper (someone inside Free Geek who keep track of our bank accounts, expense accounts, etc.)
  3. A bean counter (someone who checks the tills each morning, looking for inconsistencies, and prepping them for the bookkeeper. Also preps tills.)
  4. A cash handler (someone who takes and dispenses money at a till)


(All of this is on the Dead trees wiki page.)

Normal and oddball transactions

Normal transactions are ones that go into the database. Oddball transactions are anything else.

  • At the front desk normal transactions are donations and fees that accompany gizmo donations.
  • In the store normal transactions are sales.

Some obvious oddball transactions:

  • Someone pays an invoice
  • Someone buys something at the front desk
  • Someone finds money
  • Someone needs a reimbursement, or takes money to buy something for Free Geek.
  • Mileage -- a kind of reimbursement.


All of this has the category of "Accounting".
