Dry January turns out to be a great time to take my first inventory ever, after about 12 years of collecting. With nothing moving, it was easy to pick away at it. I have about 700 bottles and a boatload in and out over the years as we drink a lot of wine and I source a lot for friends and family. Had about 8 pick-up's and 60 write-off's. Surprised. As a former accountant, I thought I was pretty fastidious about updating CellarTracker. Most of the write-off's were whites, which for a time I kept in a separate room. Makes me think my now adult kids or someone else pinched some.
Feels really good to be sure what I have and exactly where they are.

I can't do inventory during a dry period - it makes me too sad! Every time I do inventory I find things I get excited about drinking. I try to forget the cellar is there during January.
Sort of ITB - my husband imports a small amount of sake and I help out
