When I hear a person talk about how to make a Simple Inventory Spreadsheet, I often think to myself “Really? How?” Then I realize that it’s the simplicity of making one.
People are curious about this form of inventory, but they want to know how to make simple inventory spreadsheets. But how is this possible? What kind of tools are needed and what kind of techniques are involved in this particular project?
To understand it, we need to first understand the concept of an inventory in its most efficient use. The simplest way to understand the simplest form of the inventory is to think of a person. Every single time he/she does something, he/she leaves a track on the paper that has numbers on it.
For example, if a person uses his hands to apply makeup, every time he/she does so, the persons’ fingerprints leave a number somewhere on the surface of the makeup package. This happens every time. On another occasion, a person scratches his/her nails, every time he/she does so, this creates a trail on the paper that also has numbers that track his/her total number of nails scratched.
So on and so forth. But wait! There is more. Every time a person does a thing, all the things he/she does eventually become part of that person’s “inventory”.
In short, such things as home appliances, toys, clothing, electronics, furniture, vehicles, furniture, and electronics, as well as many other things are parts of a person’s inventory. What it comes down to is that what a person owns has a name – even though he/she might not use or wear the things. In this sense, the inventory is a true record of what a person owns and uses.
With this kind of inventory, a simple inventory spreadsheet is born. It’s really pretty simple. This is because every time a person does something, he/she leaves a trace on the paper.
All the things a person owns are actually tracked on the paper as he/she does. This makes the inventory really simple, but it makes it incredibly efficient because it keeps track of the many, many things a person owns. All in all, it’s pretty amazing how a simple inventory spreadsheet can handle so much of a person’s work and business.
