Having run a business before, and having a BBA in business management, I 
think if we just spend cash and keep receipts that's "good enough" for 
tax purposes.  All cash that's physically present is effectively a "Cash 
Account" that's the same as a bank account (a bank account called "Cash" 
or "Cash Onhand" in whatever accounting software we use).

I'd like to spend the money on at least several different things, for 
example $100 on the electrical materials, $200 on computer equipment, 
and $200 on something else.
