The Food Storage Inventory Manager

By Jessica Nash

The Problem
Whether it’s a one year supply of food or just a well stocked pantry, it can be difficult to keep track of the expiration dates of stored food. Letting food expire is not only frustrating, it wastes both time and money. Keeping track of expiration dates by hand can be repetitive and boring— meaning it just won’t get done.

The Solution

The Food Storage Inventory Manager is a simple and easy to use tool for keeping track of your food storage. A collection of user forms allows even the least computer savvy user to add purchases, sort the inventory by either item type or expiration date, and record when an item is used up. The inventory manager can be updated either manually or with a barcode scanner (CueCat), which means the novelty of the system just might last longer than that clipboard.
