easy home inventoryAt the start of summer you were probably all gung ho about your summer gear.

Before the glow of your summer tans fades away you need to spend some time updating your Stockpile records. If you still haven’t tried Stockpile easy home inventory system this is a great way to get your feet wet. Creating records for your summer gear should be the perfect sized project to give you a feel for what our system can do without being overwhelming or time consuming.

Pool/Lake/Ocean Gear

Whatever form your favorite body of water comes in you probably have some floats, boats, and other stuff that you use. Tracking those items can be really important, especially since they are often worse for the wear after a season of use. That great new float from June may have developed some irreparable leaks by August. If that’s the case you need to know so that you can be on the lookout for a clearance priced replacement, or at least remember that you need to pick one up early next summer before your first outing is planned. If you’re creating records for new items be sure to include details such as size, patch kit availability, and anything else you think you might want to be able to lookup quickly.

Don’t forget to check items like goggles, snorkels, fins, and flippers. These items tend to suffer from wear issues, plus if you have growing kids what worked last year may be too small by next summer. Adding notes in Stockpile can keep you up to speed on what to look for when items go on sale.


Swimsuits, coverups, and other summer attire also wears out, gets outgrown, or even lost. Tracking what you no longer have is just as important as knowing where to find what you do have. If several items didn’t survive the season you’ll need to find replacements before you can start having fun in the sun next summer. Don’t wait until the day of your beach trip to find out that you’re missing something you really need. Just use Stockpile easy home inventory solution so that you know you’re covered.


This might seem like something you don’t need to worry about but you might be surprised. Towels get left at the pool. Worse yet, they get left in the pool bag or the bottom of the boat, or stuck inside a folding chair and by the time you see them again they are a moldy mess. Knowing that all your oversized summer towels are clean, dry, and stored where they should be can provide peace of mind. Plus, your tastes may change. If all you have are cartoon towels it might be time to invest in some florals or more sophisticated patterns. A little knowledge can be a powerful tool when you’re out shopping.
