On A&E’s popular television show, Hoarders, I evaluated the people that were starring in the particular episode called Sandi and Vivian. In this episode, Sandi is known around town as Mrs. Clause because of her extreme gift hoarding which is causing her to go bankrupt from buying so many gifts. On the other hand, Vivian is being threatened to loose custody of her grandchildren because of her hoarding addiction. After watching the opening of this television show, it really grasped my attention and made me curious to see why these people were hoarders, even when consequences were at stake. Sandi’s issues are due to her excessive hoarding and buying.

A corner store is so different from a grocery store, in that it does include many items, but it includes such a wide variety of items in a much smaller space.

The activity ratio or better known as the inventory turnover ratio due to its ability to determine on average how long inventory sits can be used as one of the best indicators showing how efficiently a company is turning its inventory into sales.

It is imperative to understand the current conditions of what materials are candidates for return, compared to the performance level of returns achieved each day. The delta between the identified material returns and the actual returns will provide information for goal setting. Additionally, with the transfer of raw materials into the warehouse, there must be a transaction to receive it into inventory and distribute it to the appropriate location. At that point, the process will be complete for the appropriate accounting of the materials, creating availability for consumption at the next production demand. The data collected will be influential in developing a robust procedure for each assembly line to follow in a consistent manner.

Throughout the years, several different methods have been developed, which are dependent on the respective regulations of countries and institutions, such as the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The most common inventory methods include FIFO (first-in, last-out), LIFO (last- in, first-out), HIFO (highest-in, first-out), FEFO (first-expired, first-out), as well as the average costing method (AVCO). Each of them has their specific advantages and disadvantages, and comes with certain restrictions and regulations (Lee and Hsieh, 1983, p.7).
