Flag on the Play
During the game, a flag on a play indicates a foul but for many fans flags are a game day staple. Whether you put them on your mailbox, hang them from a garden stake, attach them to your vehicle, or wave them at the stadium keeping up with your flags is a must. You'll also want to track their condition and care instructions since flags are more exposed to the elements than some of your other gear. Knowing how to clean them can really extend the life of your fan gear. Because Stockpile is fully customizable you can include details such as this in the comments section or create a special field. That's part of the reason why our system is a leading home inventory solution.
Many fans have t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, hats and more. Knowing where to find these various items can be the difference between enjoying a tailgate in the parking lot or missing the opening kickoff. Having records in Stockpile leading home inventory solution means you'll always be able to find the gear you want regardless of where it's stored in your home. (That is, of course, as long as you keep your records up to date.) As you create your records be very specific about where items are stored. Using both areas and locations allows you to pinpoint exactly which shelf, bin, cabinet, etc holds the piece you're looking for. Take advantage of this level of detail so that you can easily find what you need. Because Stockpile is available for free you can give multiple users access to the system. If someone else borrows an item or just moves it to a new spot they can access the system and update the item record to reflect the change. When other members of your household can update records the odds are higher that your data will remain current. Remember to also include care instructions in these records, particularly if your collection includes outerwear such as hats, gloves, scarves and other items that require special care.
If your collection also includes serving pieces such as glasses, plates, platters, bowls, or other game day kitchenware you may want to have access to info about where you got the item in question. We hope it doesn't happen to you, but often fan reaction to a bad play results in a serious party foul and broken game day treasures.
