A word about keeping inventory

I have to mention something that I have learned from doing this for almost 10 years now.
When I first started, I didnt have that many props.
Now I take up an entire storage room and another shed.
Keep inventory!!!!
I am starting on new props and I have discovered that I am missing stuff.
I use rubber made tubs to store stuff.
This year I am going to get stick on labels and write down everything that is in the tub. It is going to take more time storing stuff away but right now I am suffering because I have no idea where things are. I have about 30 tubs and it is a pain to look through all of them for one mask.
Just venting!!!!!

I label my totes and boxes, but I've got to start keeping a detailed inventory or something, because I still can't find exactly what I want when I'm looking for it... :eek:

On the plus side, I am sure I will be pleasantly surprised by the amount of stuff that I have when I finally pull it all out! :D
Oh, yes. I'm constantly surprised at the stuff I have. I forget the stuff bought in the after sales, and it's like opening presents at Christmas... oops. :rolleyes:

pics are great for your inventory...quick scan to check. Also, I have a ton of boxes of stuff. I print off pics arrange like Big Lots shelf guide and tape to the boxes.
That is smart! I think I'll try that this year. :)
