Default Computer program for inventory

For several reasons this thought has come into my head.

I know a lot of people are using Evernote or another app in their phones for their stuff.

I would like to know if anyone knows of a computer program that could do this. I have a lot of excel sheets but they still cant do it all.

When I searched I did not find a thread on this.

I use Microsoft's OneNote for my Cricut cartridges. I'm going through and writing down each shape I have and where to find it, so if I need a pair of men's shoes, I can just do a search on "shoe". Time consuming, but worth it. I think if I had more time to play with this program I could do more with it.

My stamps and paper are semi-organized in Microsoft Excel, but moving it all onto Google Docs so it's always "with" me.

My biggest fear is putting everything into a program and then not having it be supported anymore I feel comfortable with the basic Microsoft office programs being supported for the next decade or so. Or at least other programs being able to open them if something happens to Microsoft.

I did start to work on building forms within Excel, but I'm having problems finding the time. Same with Axcess (? is that the Microsoft database system?).

So, I was unhelpful, wasn't I?

Ok I found it and Access. I think I should get a Dummies book on Access.

Access was very involved! I'm usually good at picking up programs, but that was tough. It was a few years ago, so maybe the most recent version is easier?

OneNote is very close to Evernote and although quirky, is easier for me than Access.

Good Luck!

You can use Evernote on a computer.




I love Evernote I have it on a Windows computer on my iPad and on my iPhone, and it syncs to all three I do pay the middle package (plus, not sure if that Plan is still available )


But I think you can have it for free if you just want it on one or two unit, such as your computer and tablet or phone .Basic plan has limited load size per month

I notice for entering information it works a little bit differently on all formats, which I like having the options.



at one time I think if you sign up through someone you both got a premium package for the month

Thanks for the responses.

I am SO not a tech person. I try and try but I dont have the aptitude. Like I have NO idea how much memory I would want for this? It will be a lot of stuff.
Gee the idea that I could enter on my computer and access on the phone....so when I am in a store...ooooo. Or I could take pics on my phone and it will be visible on the computer.

I wont be able to start loading till probably after the new year , but I need time to figure it out and then budget for it.

I use One Note and love it, and I usually enter on my PC, then I have it for when I'm out too, on my phone. Wavejumper, theres a whole list here of You Tube videos about One Note, they should help.
But it is really, really simple to use. Because it's synced between your pc and phone/tablet, it's cloud based, so not actually taking up any memory on your phone, you just need Internet access, which most stores etc have these days.

If using your phone beware of data plans as well.
We travel at times, we are out of country, then my data is limited.
With Evernote I download the files to my phone instead so I have the access offline plan, currently Evernote is using 1.67 gb I have just about 2500 notes in there lots are images of stamp set, dies, etc
Plus other non craft items
