A Better Plan For Your Inventory Storeroom

One thing Los Angeles residents can agree on: No matter where you live or work, storage space always seems to be at premium. It fills up fast whether that is your apartment storage bin, your garage or your business’s inventory storeroom. When it comes to your business, that storage space can become a hindrance if it isn’t utilized properly. Here’s how to make it work.warehouse-485240_1280

Draw Out a Good Floor Plan

Even a small storeroom in the back of a restaurant should have a floor plan. This plan can be drawn up, laminated and posted for anyone to see. It should detail where things are on a shelf and which set of shelves. Think of it as a “roadmap” for your staff to follow. It will be very helpful for new staff to follow the map vs. constantly asking where something is.

Set Policies

A big business like Amazon has an automated warehouse with a massive data system that tracks every item. When supplies are low, the supply chain is alerted and arrangements are made to replenish. At lot of this happens automatically. Your business might not have a system like that in place but there can still be policies that establish a supply chain that works best for your company. When you need to reorder an item it crucial and every employee who works in the storeroom should know when to trigger those reorders.

Provide for the Staff

As best as you can, you should try to provide space for your staff to take breaks or hold meetings. You don’t want them sitting on crates in the alley eating their lunch. If a separate breakroom isn’t feasible, then a table with benches can serve the same purpose.

Utilize the Space

This pertains to the concept of what is valuable and what is a loss. Obviously, the bulk of your inventory should be items that are either being sold at a store or shipped to a customer. There will probably also be returned and damaged items that can’t be sold again. Those are the loss items but do you have to hold onto them. Once a record has been made of them, they should be consider rubbish and at that point you’ll want to hire Junk King Los Angeles for a rubbish clearing. Junk King can send over a dedicated team and truck that can handle a relatively large amount of rubbish removal. When the goal is to make more space in your inventory storeroom, you can count on Junk King Los Angeles to be a big help with rubbish removal.

Good Advice For Back-To-School Prep

When it is back-to-school time, everything around the household changes. Even though summer vacation wasn’t technically that long, it was long enough to forget about what it takes to get up, get ready and get out the door for school. Those challenges are in place whether you’re sending a toddler or a teenager off to school. Here is some good advice you can put into place to make your back-to-school transition run smoother:

back-to-school-183533_1280

Identify Priorities

The older the student, the more opportunities for activities that happen outside of school time. Sports, theater, friends, social media and homework all have to find a way to get squeezed into the day. This is when you need to identify your student’s priorities. They can spend time with all of those activities but not at the detriment of grades. TV shows can be recorded and watched later. Friends can wait until the weekend. The focus should be dedicated time each night for homework. After that, the other things can fall into place.

Social Media Cut Off

Speaking of social media, you need to establish some boundaries with regard to Smartphone use. It should probably be shut off during homework time but also during family meals. In fact, no phone should make an appearance at the dinner table! It is also important to set a curfew for social media. It’s not hard to imagine kids staying up all night texting back and forth. If it becomes a real problem, then perhaps the solution is to surrender all devices at bedtime and retrieve them in the morning.

Ask Questions

As the parent, you’re going to want to find out how their school days are going. The classic “How was school today?” and cliché response, “Fine” might not provide the information you’re really seeking. You’ll want to go deeper and ask questions that provoke better answers like “What kind of challenges did you overcome today?” “Who did you help?” “What is your goal for tomorrow?” There might be some grumbling at first but keep pressing until a dialogue happens.

Remove Clutter

Starting the school year is a clean slate for the kids. It should also be a clean slate around the house. The less clutter, the less distractions. Junk King Los Angeles can prove to be a terrific decluttering partner. All those unwanted items from your kid’s closet, dresser, shelves and bedroom can be gathered up and carted away by Junk King.

Ask For Upgrades

bed-1090440_960_720

Relax and Clear Your Mind

Although running a marathon might make you tired, you probably wouldn’t be able to cross the finish line and fall asleep. Your body would be too charged up. That happens to you on a smaller scale throughout the day as you navigate through your work, family and other relationships. Before bed, you need to find ways to “shut down” you mind and relax.

Write Out Your To-Do

Often we can’t get to sleep because our minds are working on overtime. That is understandable but it’s not helping. One thing you could try is to write out all the things you need to accomplish the following day. That includes any calls you have to make or bills you have to pay. That list becomes your “marching orders” for when you wake up in the morning but once you write it down, you don’t have to dwell on it. All that stuff will get done. Relax.

Get a Comfortable Mattress

Sometimes getting comfortable in bed isn’t about calming down the mind but trying to find the perfect sleeping spot. The older your mattress is, the more of a challenge it is to find that sweet spot. It might be time to replace you mattress. Before that can happen, you need to arrange for the old mattress to be removed. That can be quickly handled with one call to Junk King Los Angeles.
