If you are an online merchant, you know how difficult it is to store your inventory in your home. The area that you use for the inventory must be organized, well-lit and away from anything that could cause your inventory to smell funny. Cooking smells, cigarette smoke, pets and other smells of the home can quickly become absorbed into the things you hope to sell. Below, you will find a few tips that can help you manage your inventory in your home efficiently.
Build a Closet
Custom closet builders can create a merchant's dream inventory area. You can have shelves and drawers made with different depths, sizes and shapes. Having one custom-built closet will provide you with all of the storage space that you need. If one closet isn't enough, you can always have two or have the closet builders design an entire room for your inventory.
Note: If you have the space in your home to have a room dedicated to your online sales business, you can incorporate a desk area for your computer, printer, scale and supplies. You can also have a space dedicated to taking pictures of the things you are selling.
Keep it Dry
Moisture can be very damaging to just about anything that you are selling. Keep the air dry by running a dehumidifier in the storage space. If you don't have the room for a dehumidifier, you can use small canisters of moisture absorbing materials placed around the room to suck the moisture right out of the air.
Manage the Odors
Once you have the inventory in one place, it will be easier for you to protect it from the odors of your home. Use rubber seals around the door to keep odors from seeping into the room and never eat, smoke or allow your pets in the room.
Find an air freshener that has a mild smell to it. The best option is to use the air fresheners that have the odor killing properties so that they kill the odors without putting too much of the good scent into the inventory. Remember, what may smell very nice to you may not be pleasant for the buyer.
