This set of free printable home inventory sheets helps you not only organize your home, but keep track of essential pantry, kitchen, freezer, cleaning supplies and more.
As of the writing of this post, we are currently on a “stay home” order from the Governor of Ohio due to the spread of the Coronavirus. We are practicing social distancing and we are limiting our trips to the grocery store.
When you need or want to have a 2, 4 or 6 week supply of essentials on hand, it really helps to have an inventory of what you have so you know when you need to purchase or order more.
Necessity Breeds Innovation
I’m actually speaking from experience here. My husband asked me, “How much canned fruit do we have?” My answer? I don’t know. That, to me, was just an unacceptable answer.
Like many of you, we’ve made several trips to the grocery store lately to stock up on canned, dry and freezer goods. I literally found myself not knowing what we have on hand because everything was just kind of shoved on the shelves, in the freezer and in the cupboards.
That is not how I roll! If you knew me in real life, you would know that I thrive on having everything organized. Chaos literally makes me nervous. So, I created this set of printable home inventory sheets.
How to Inventory Your Pantry
Inventorying your pantry is a very helpful (if not necessary) step if you want to not only know what you have on hand, but to be prepared for the days and weeks ahead. These printable home inventory sheets will help you do exactly that.
Step One: Remove everything from your pantry.
Step Two: Organize your canned goods, dry goods, etc. For example, put all your vegetables together, all pastas together, canned fruit together, etc. Then separate those piles into specific types, such as all your cans of green beans together, all your cans of corn together and so on.
Step Three: Clean your shelves. Now is a great time to simply wipe down your shelves before you put anything away. And you can also wipe down cans, bottles and boxes, if necessary before you put them away.
Step Four: Now that you have everything organized. Grab your Inventory sheet and start writing down what you have on hand. Put the name of the product in the Item column. Write in today’s date in the Date column. Then enter the actual quantity on hand in the first Quantity box.
Step Five: I like to put the heaviest items on the bottom shelves or near the bottom. Then I put the most often used items (cans of green beans) within easy reach. And, lastly, the less used items I put away on the higher shelves. Also, pay attention to expiration dates and discard anything that has expired.
Step Six: Keep your Inventory sheet nearby and update as you use or add items. When you use a can of green beans, for example, you simply mark through the existing inventory quantity and fill in the new quantity in the next box.
I like to keep the inventory sheets on a clipboard and keep a pen attached to the clipboard so I can update it easily and every time I remove or add items to my pantry.
