Does anyone know of a good inventory tracking program? I am hoping to find an all in one inventory/expense type program to keep track of my stock, expenses, income, etc. I've been reading about a few but I'm hoping to hear word of mouth what ones you have used and like. Thanks!

Wow, that's one that I haven't seen yet! I've bookmarked it so I can go back and explore, but from my initial glance I bet it has everything I want. See, I knew someone here would know! A thousand thank yous for all the assistance you've provided me with here Soapbuddy!

I have Soapmaker 3 and it takes awhile to get everything entered, but it's great for keeping track of stuff. You just have to make sure you enter all your new supplies right away, as well as any product sales. :D

Thanks Linda. That's my downfall is data entering, but I'm learning now what a pain it is to catch up if you fall behind. Is it pretty user friendly?

Does anyone use quick books? I know they have expense software and someone told me a long time ago they thought they have inventory tracking, but it looks like the one program that mentions it is very expensive.

I have an appt with a CPA this afternoon so hopefully I can get more organized.

Look online for an inventory tracking data sheet for a spreadsheet program. I find this the easiest way. :mrgreen: You can get a free spreadsheet program (similar to excel) from . There are many online tutorials (probably even videos on youtube) that teach you how to set up and inventory spreadsheet. The initial set up is slightly time consuming, a little less than soapmaker but still takes some time. But after that it is super easy to keep track of inventory and costs! :mrgreen:

I love the soapmaker program. I did not opt for the professional version as this is still just a hobby for me. I am not very computer literate but was able to learn this program with relative ease. I like that it keeps my recipes sorted for me and I can go back and quickly print one without much to do.... have many sized for which mold I want to use. I like watching the cost factor but again it is just a hobby. But the truth to any computer program is putting in the correct or useful data.

Does this have features that work for melt and pour? I'd hate to get something that has stuff I can't use :o

I am a bad, bad girl. I have a notebook that I list all my supplies in (date, where bought, how much 'cuz the receipt says what was bought). Then I have my tax stubs of my sales per show. Since I never got a police report on the boxes of soaps stolen, I cannot count those. I'm currently okay I think because I keep those records. My CPA told me to make sure I have a big envelope marked "equipment" and another marked "supplies" and stick every receipt in there and then mark down my mileage and my show costs and how much is sold. You can easily track cash and credit card sales with Square!

Hello goodcleanfun

Turns out i have this application

https://essentialoilerp.wordpress.com/

for managing fragrance and essential oil makers inventory. At first, should work for soap makers for managing their inventory as well .
If not, I would be very happy to hear your opinions of what is missing.

Cheers!
