Prep & Pantry 2.0 Overview
Simply keeping an inventory of your pantry can be a cumbersome task, especially if all you have is a pad of paper. Items get shelved without being recorded. A family member takes an item off of the shelf with out making note of what was used. If this happens just a few times you will have to start over and re-inventory everything! Who knows how far off the inventory list is?
What about that first aid kit or the food in your emergency bag. It can be mind-boggling how quickly those items seem to expire.
Prep & Pantry is designed to be dead simple. Quick and easy to use. Clean. Uncluttered. Add a full shelf of items in minutes. Check an item out in seconds. Find what has expired or is about to along with where it is, right now.
Prep & Pantry does more than track item expiration. It is useful for keeping supply inventories by location and quantity. For example, tracking the number of canisters of stove fuel and where they are stored. The contents of the first aid kit or your emergency bag. The emergency supplies in your car. Your book collection. The wine cellar. It doesn’t matter what you need to keep track of, Prep & Pantry is there for you.
The items you keep track of don’t necessarily have to have a barcode either. Select the No Barcode option or create your own tracking ids using any combination of numbers and letters. Do you have your own label printer? Using readily found software you can print your own barcodes.
