Stock Up for the Holidays: Check Your Supply Inventory

In these weeks before the holiday season, it’s a good idea to check your supply inventory. The last thing you want to do in December is search for the number for a vendor to rush some supplies to you.

Some of the items to inventory might include:

  • bags (or sacks… depending on where you live)
  • rolls of receipt paper
  • mailing envelopes
  • mailing labels
  • packing tape
  • gift wrap tape
  • gift wrap
  • ribbon
  • store labeling (for packaging, etc.)
  • post-its

It’s also a good idea to take stock of specialty printed items. Business cards, gift enclosure cards, store notecards. These can often be reprinted in just a couple of weeks. But that can feel like an eternity once you’ve used the last one.
