HOWTO Replace Zefty with GDocs

[EDIT:  Zefty’s back up.]

I used Zefty pretty extensively with my kiddo. He liked being able to see and keep track of what he earned, while I liked not having to have (or worry about) cash. Not to mention that it really helps when those taking care of the child aren’t always in the same location – such as grandparents, divorced or separated parents, or even savvy babysitters.

Zefty’s been down for half a week now, and I’m starting to think that it’s not coming back. Luckily, I used it enough that I remember his balance… and I realized that I could recreate the essentials using Google Docs. Here’s a link to a public copy of what I made:

The real copy has edit permissions for his mother and I, and view permissions for him only. While the interface isn’t quite as kid-friendly, it’s the big G, so it’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
