Default Keeping Track of Ribbon and Widths?

My MIL recently gave me some ribbon and now I have a few in varying sizes. Does anybody have a good way to keep track of what ribbon and what width you have? I use my ipod and android phone a lot, so wondering if there are any apps on there that would help.

I have an excel spreadsheet I put together. Basically I just started with colors going down the left column and from there put in the widths going across the top.

I split up the column for swiss dot, glitter and then Patterned got it's own section. I have zebra in a few widths and camo so it was nice to just be able to check that off in one place. I think it was easier and works well when I do inventory.

My coding is just - if I don't have X if I do and then if I'm low R (for Reorder) goes in my size boxes. Hope this helps!!

What do you do if you ever buy any in a store (that is where I get all my ribbon) How do you make sure something coordinates before you buy it? I was thinking of maybe making something with index cards, and one of those binder rings that could easily be carried with me.

I have it printed out and put in my day planner so I always have the reference. I've been thinking about doing a swatch card series for my prints since otherwise it'd just be overwhelming to carry!

I am using an excel spreadsheet as well.

When I buy ribbons, I always cut a 1" piece off and glue them on a A/4 sized page and put it in my binder which holds all the things concerning my bow business.

Interesting Ideas I never thought of doing those.
