Every household stocks household supplies. You have cleaning products, toilet paper, toothpaste, paper towels...the list goes on and on. That means two things, you have to store these items and you need to keep track of what you have on hand so that you purchase more before you run out of an essential. Today we have some great tips on how Stockpile home inventory solution can help you do this better.
No matter how large your home is, storage space always seems to be at a premium. It's doubtful that you have a large walk-in storage just for holding all your household essentials. More than likely, these items are spread out around your home. You probably keep somethings in the kitchen, some in the linen closet, some under the bathroom sink. While that can be good for keeping things out of sight, it can make it difficult to keep track of what you have and when you're in danger of running out of something. If you've ever used the last of the shampoo the day after you went to the store, you know how frustrating that can be. Fortunately, Stockpile can help.
Many people hesitate to use Stockpile home inventory solution because they think it's going to be too big of a job. Starting small by just adding your household essentials is a great way to try it out. Make a list of the items that you'd like to track. Go room by room and create item records. Adding items is quick and easy. Because Stockpile is fully customizable you don't have to worry about including info that you aren't interested in tracking. You only have to add the details that are important to you. Do remember to use both areas and locations so that you can be specific about where items are stored. This level of detail may seem unnecessary initially, but, trust us, down the road you'll be glad that you know exactly where to find what you need. Don't just say hall bathroom. Track the cabinet and shelf where the item is stored. This way if someone else is looking for something they can easily find it on their own as well.
Being specific about quantities can be useful as well. One tube of toothpaste is pretty self explanatory, but what about one pack of toilet paper? That could be a four, six, twelve, or even larger pack. Adding an exact number will give you a better idea of how much you have on hand and when you should think about getting more.
Once you have your records created you'll need to keep up with your quantities. These products do get used and they will run out. You need to know when the numbers start to dwindle so that you'll know when to buy more. If you quickly update Stockpile home inventory solution each time you take something from your stock or use up something you'll always know how much you have left. This takes the guesswork out of when to buy more.
Standing in the store wondering if you should take advantage of that great sale? If you're running low on that product the answer is yes. If, on the other hand, you already have more than you have room for you should probably pass this time. Wish there was a way to know for sure? There is. Stockpile is mobile compatible which means that you can access your records on your favorite mobile device while you're at the store.
