Supplies
is an asset account used to keep track of supplies (e.g. pencils, paper). The supplies account is increased when new supplies are acquired and decreased when supplies are used or expensed (usually in a single adjusting entry at period end). Supplies normally represent a current asset in the assets section of the balance sheet.
