This section helps you stay on top of your inventory and make informed decisions about restocking.


The purchases section of the overview page provides a comprehensive view of your total purchases. It includes a pie chart displaying a color-coded breakdown of your purchases by category, which clearly explains your spending and helps you optimize your purchasing strategy. Customizable filters allow you to focus on specific periods or categories to gain insights.
