Instantly find your items in your home inventory with search!


How many times have you known the frustration of owning an item, searching for it everywhere, but in the end, not being able to find it? And how many times have you just bought a new item instead of searching for the item you already own, because you know you will never find it so it is just easier to buy it again? We believe Everspruce is the best iOS home inventory app, and one of the many reasons why is the powerful search feature - which allows you to instantly find items in your home inventory. In this blog post, we're going to dive into the power of the search feature and see how it can help you find those seldom used items quickly and easily.

Where do you find home inventory search?

Finding the Search page couldn't be easier, just tap on the magnifying glass icon in the lower right corner.

What home inventory can you find using search?

Everspruce search allows you to find all your home inventory entries by any number of ways.

Search using text

One of the most straightforward ways to find your home belongings is via the search text box. Just type in letters and watch Everspruce automatically filter to the items that you are looking for.

Search using tags

If you've tagged items, you can simply search for all items that match that tag quickly and easily.

Search by entry type

There are three filter boxes at the top of the Search page - "Areas", "Boxes", and "Items" that automatically filter down to the entry type selected. Most users search with the "Item" filter selected but you can also just as easily search for areas and boxes, respectively as well.

Search checked out items and boxes

The Search page allows you to instantly see all your checked out boxes and items by tapping on the "Checked out" button in the upper right of the page.

Search by sorting

In the upper right corner there is a sort button that allows you to sort the results by the following criteria:

  • Name (A - Z)

  • Name (Z - A)

  • Newest

  • Oldest

  • Quantity (High to Low)

  • Quantity (Low to High)

  • Value (High to Low)

  • Value (Low to High)

This can help you find items in relation to other items - for example - your most expensive items or the newest item.

Search by image

A lot of our users are visual people, and they like starting out with maybe a key word or two to search on and then they can quickly find the item they're looking for by looking at each entry's photos.

Search using a combination of all of the above

The Search page allows you to combine all of these different and powerful search facets to help you find exactly what you're looking for as fast as possible.

Can I export my search results?

You can easily export your search results via PDF or CSV - just tap on "Options" in the right corner of the Search page. Read exporting your home inventory to learn more about this capability.

What are the benefits of using search?

Search is a powerful way to find your home inventory items and ensures you'll never lose items again, reduces the need to buy items that you already have, and gives you peace of mind that the things you need will always be one tap away.


In conclusion, the powerful search feature is another example of how the Everspruce app transforms home inventory, and reduces guesswork and frustration from your life.
