When we talk about at home inventory management we are usually referring to be able to locate items within your home. Today, we're taking a slightly different approach. Some items in your home are so small and/or inexpensive that you'll just replace them if they break or wear out. For other items it makes more sense to repair them whenever possible. Things like your large appliances, a treasured keepsake, and more fall into this category.
While you definitely don't need Stockpile to keep track of your fridge's whereabouts, you can use it to track other important information such as the customer service number, the warranty information and the make, model, and ordering instructions for getting a new bulb or filter when you need one.
That's right, Stockpile reliable inventory management system can be a real time saver when something goes wrong with those of special case items in your home. Most of us keep the owner's manual that came with a large purchase somewhere in our homes. The problem is that over time those manuals pile up, get moved to a different location or just plain disappear. Then when you have an issue you're left digging through piles of old papers or searching the internet trying to figure out which number is the right one for your particular make and model. Who has the time for all that?
If it's a major appliance like the fridge or your washing machine on the fritz, chances are you want to get it fixed as soon as possible. Failing to realize that it's actually under warranty or just not calling the approved repair person can cost you big bucks as well. Having all that important info at your fingertips can really save you in the long run.
