Scout It Out

simple inventory solutionScout leaders, this is the post for you! If you're involved in any kind of scouting you're familiar with the numerous guides, supplies, and other gear that you have to keep track of. You also know that some supplies are timeless and others are only used for a short time before your scout moves up to the next level. If you'd like to have a easy way to track all your scouting stuff, Stockpile simple inventory solution is the answer you've been looking for.

Level Specific Guides

For Girl Scouts there are level specific guides and journeys. If your daughter starts as a Daisy by the time she reaches Cadette level you could have quite a collection of these. You may want to hold on to the books if you have other younger girls in the family or you may want to just share them with other members of your council. Either way, it can be good to keep track of what you had and what you did with it. Stockpile is fully customizable so you choose which fields to include in item records. This makes it easy to track the information that is important to you. You may want a field that specifies what level the guide is for, what year's edition you have, and even whether or not your daughter completed the journey or other badges. Whatever you'd like to be able to access later, you can include it in Stockpile.


All kinds of scouting include supplies. Whether it's craft materials, camping gear, outdoor equipment, first aid supplies or other stuff, it's important to know what you have and where you keep it. A number of supplies are shared among troop, tribe, or pack members and that it makes it even more important that you have good records that are easily accessible. Because Stockpile is free to use there is no limit on the number of people you can grant access to your data. Thanks to mobile compatibility you can pull up your records anytime as long as you have internet access. Thanks to areas and locations you can be very specific about where items are stored. This can eliminate the potential for confusion. You can even include a photograph in your item records so even someone who is unfamiliar with the item will be able to easily identify it.

Gone but Not Forgotten 

Sometimes guides and supplies are used up, given away, or just lost. Unfortunately, you may not remember that you no longer have something and that can lead to wasted time searching for something that can't be found. Stockpile can save you from this scenario. If you update your records to show that you no longer have something you'll never have to worry about fruitlessly searching. Plus, you'll know that you need to get a replacement more quickly. This can save you time and money because you often end up spending more when you have to get something in a hurry.

There are so many reasons to use Stockpile. You'll have more time to focus on the things that matter most and less stress when it comes to keeping track of everything. Ready to get started? Try Stockpile today!
