How can I keep track of products and labels/bags together?

We want to set up a system where we can keep track of labels & bags for products that we sell together. I have researched and found out that grouping items together might be a choice but I am not sure if this would be the best option for us.


Basically what we are looking for is the inventory tracking system of labels & bags whenever we sell products that go with it. Of course we would be ordering labels/bags from a different supplier from products supplier so purchase orders would be coming from different suppliers. But when we sell products to customers we would like to have them leave our inventory together but not necessarily show label/bag information on invoices since customers won't be charges for us.


What could be the best option for us?

Re: How can I keep track of products and labels/bags together?

Hi there, @at_mia


It's nice to have you here in the Community. I'm here to help you with keeping track of products and labels/bags together in QuickBooks Desktop. 


You can create a Group type of item in QuickBooks which includes the bags and labels as an Item. This will allows you to enter a group of individual items that you often purchase or sell together.


To do that:

  1. Click on List at the top.
  2. Select on Item List.
  3. Right-click anywhere on the page and select New.
  4. Under the Type section, select on Group
  5. Enter the Group Name.
  6. Under the Item section, click on the drop-down arrow and Add a new Item.
  7. Click on OK.

For more information about this process, please refer to this article: Create, build, and work with inventory assembly items.


Also, I have here some articles that you can refer to about dealing inventory in QuickBooks Desktop:


Understand Inventory Assets and COGS tracking.

Add, edit, and delete items.


These resources will assist you in tracking your products and labels/bags together into QuickBooks.


Don't hesitate to let me know if I can be of additional assistance. Cheering your business to continued prosperity.
