Inventory Items

My mother in law owns a small grocery store. I help her with Quickbooks and that side of everything. We don't track inventory in Quickbooks. The question I have is, if she uses an item from the shelves (cleaning products) to use in the store, where would I post that or, do I need to even need to account for it in QuickBooks /

Inventory Items

Good day, @KellyNWalters1.

 

I'll share with you some knowledge about inventory in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT).


Since you didn't use the inventory feature, you can post the shelves item by creating a Sales Receipt in QBDT. That said, you don't need an account. Please make sure that the amount is zero and there's a quantity entered. 

 

Here's how: 

 

  1. Go to the Customer menu, then choose Enter Sales Receipts
  2. Choose customer's in a drop-down arrow. 
  3. Under Item, pick the item that you've previously used. 
  4. Enter a quantity in the box, then leave the amount to zero. 
  5. Tap Save & Close

 

By doing this, to see that there was a reduction in the number, but there's no income occurred. For more details, check out this article: Create sales receipts.

 

I've attached an article about managing inventory for your prospective reference: 

 

 

Please know that I'm only a few clicks away if you have any follow-up questions. Take care!
