Today I did a few cool things — slept in, drank coffee outside, talked to my brother on the phone (he’s still deployed), rode bikes to the Shadowlawn Halloween party, ate chili cheese tots for dinner — but the coolest was that I worked on a prototype of an app I’ve had swirling around in my head for ages.

It’s an app that would keep an inventory of the items you own and how frequently you use them — specifically, your clothes, shoes, and accessories. But it could be repurposed for anything. The would help you understand the items you use most frequently and provide the best value based on what you paid for them, how long you’ve had them, and how many times you’ve used them. It should help you make data-driven decisions about what types of items to purchase (or not purchase) in the future, and which items you should probably part with.

I know Salesforce probably is not the best platform for this app, but I’m making a little prototype in there anyway because it’s the platform I can build it in the fastest. My first stab at some objects, fields, and functionality are complete, so now I’m just going to start adding items and uses to collect some data over the next few days.

Hopefully I don’t get distracted. 🙂
