Get organized, and never lose track of your stuff.SM

We believe life is better when things are organized and easy to find.
Our company revolves around this simple philosophy, that every thing has its place, and that things should be easy to find when they are needed. We are passionate about organization and look at the spaces where things are kept as potential libraries. Our drive is fueled every time someone hears about what we have created and quickly thinks of how it can help them, often in a way we didn't imagine.

About Tub Track

On this page, you will find information about getting started with one of our Track'It Packets, using the Tub Track App, using the Tub Track Platform, and some suggestions for ways you can use Tub Track to get organized and keep track of your stuff.

FAQs

  • What is a Tub? Any container where you place things (a plastic tub, bin, or tote, a cardboard box, a carton, a case, a file folder, etc.).
  • What goes in a Tub? Clothes, memorabilia, holiday decorations, tools, parts, etc.
  • What is a Storage Facility? Any place where you store stuff (garage, self storage unit, warehouse, storage closet, filing cabinet, tool chest, etc.).

Getting Started with a Track'It Packet

A Track'It Packet makes it easy to get going with Tub Track, and it provides you with 20 pre-printed labels, so you don't need your own label printer. You can order more labels as you need them.

The most important things to remember when you are first getting started with a Track'It Packet are:

  • The packet includes a Free Subscription Activation Code and 20 pre-printed labels.
    • When you activate your Track'It Packet, you register your free "Storage Facility" (Home, Garage, Storage Unit, etc.).
  • Email is Critical!
    • Note: If you don't see a message from us, check your Spam folder.
    • All communications are done through email, so you must provide a good email address, and then verify it by clicking the link in the message you receive from us.
    • The first email we send when you activate and submit your registration information contains valuable information about your account (Login, Password, App User Code, Facility Code), so we recommend you print or save it, or both!
  • App User Code: This is your User Code, and it's all you need to log into the Tub Track App. When you tap the Get Started button, you will be asked to set your code, then it will remain set each time you open the app, unless you change it.
  • Facility Code: This is the Location identifier for your Storage Facility. You only need to enter it in the Tub Track App when you are performing location scanning on your Tubs.
