Biz Builders...Inventory Tips

Do you ever struggle to keep your Mary Kay inventory organized? Regina Zona once shared some tips on how to help you stay on top of it.

You'll be interested to know that these ideas will also help you in your home life. Do you ever find your pantry cupboards in a mess and you're not sure if you've got the items, because cans and boxes are scattered on different shelves?

Follow these tips for your business, as well as your grocery, laundry and toiletries inventories, and suddenly your life will be simpler and less frustrating.


1. Keep your inventory together in one area. That way, every time you go to fill an order (and you want lots of those) you won't have to zigzag across the room, or go from closet to closet. This will save you valuable time, energy and steps. Plus, you won't be ordering too much of one thing and not enough of another.

2. Organize the product on your shelves in the same order as it appears on the order sheet. It's easier to track what you have, so when you get ready to place an order, you won't have to flip back and forth to find the right section on your sheet.

3. Keep enough space available for the largest amount you will ever have on hand. For example, if you want to keep seven cleansers on hand, but only have three at the moment, make sure you leave enough empty space for when you do order the other four bottles. Two reasons: (1) it's easier to track when it's all in one place; and (2) when you see empty space, you easily recognize when you're getting low and you need to replace it.
