Spend Money - Not a regular supplier or just a random reciept

As an ex myob user I looked everywhere in R1 for a way to spend money without using a supplier in my list - Very easy to do in myob.
In the end I have to use JOURNAL to allocate the spending to an account and apply a credit to my bank. Took a bit of getting used to (non accountant minded - Journal entries can be confusing - "opposite land" crediting my bank account to take money out of it - Wierd!)

I would like a way to spend money on an item that is not from a supplier in my list. Like if I visit a service station in a random town and purchase some oil for my car. I don't want to add "Jim's Service Station" as a supplier to my Reckon One.

In this case where you have a generic supply like in your example Jim's Service Station, I create a supplier called "fuel". That way you wont have hundreds of service stations in your supplier list

Misc. supplier, if you wish you can add where it was spent in details.

Hi Melinda,

You have a couple of options. As suggested above you can create a supplier called Fuel and in the details put where it was or you can create a Cash Purchases card and use that as a supplier and in the notes / details specify what was used.

Thanks for everyones reply here. I should have mentioned that I too thought of this but decided that a question was worthwhile because Fuel or Cash Purchase or whatever other misc supplier you can think of is only a work-around. I will continue to use the journal until a better Fix is available.
Still the best software I have used! 
Thank you.

Quickbooks online has a option to allow a expense to be put through without entering a supplier ;) Just saying. (its also not a reckon product too)
