Ordering Hygiene Supplies

My office has put me in charge of ordering hygiene supplies- does anyone else do this and have any advice or forms to help with keeping track of the inventory?

We use a tag system in our office. Our dental supply company gives us tags with labels on them with the product description, order number, etc., and then we place the tag on/ or in the proper place with the product. For example, usually we attach a rubber band to the tag and put in around the 2nd, or 3rd, or 4th to the LAST item( whatever works for the supply in need). So for gloves, we take the tag off and put it in a specific location ( basket near computer), when we are down to the last three or four boxes. We never put the tag on the LAST item, since this could lead to running out before the shipment arrives. At a previous ( smaller) office, we kept a list in the supply closet and wrote down things we would need to order that week. As long as all employees know how the tag system needs to work ( and follows through!), it is a very good way to do ordering. Best of luck!

I have found Ginger’s way to be the easiest also. 🙂
