This innovative app works with labels and boxes to keep track of your personal belongings when you’re prepping for a move or storing items for future use.
Simply purchase Duck Pack & Track (TM) labels, download the app and you will be on your way to smarter storage.
· How it Works ·
Before you get started, make sure you purchase custom Duck Pack & Track (TM) labels online or at a retailer near you.
· Label the Box ·
Write a descriptive name on your Duck Pack & Track label about the contents of the box. Make sure that each box name is only used once.
· Scan the Label ·
Access the Duck Pack & Track app on your smartphone and use the “Scan” button. This will open your smartphone camera and you can now scan barcode off your box. When prompted, speak or type the name of your box.
· Speak or Type the Contents ·
Add items to your box by speaking or typing in the app. Use the word “and” to add more than 1 item at once, for example, “pots and pans.”
Find the Items
There are two ways to find items in the app when you’re ready to locate your belongings:
1. Scan the label on the outside of the box with your smartphone camera to pull up a full list of the contents.
2. Use the “Find” function in the app to locate items. Simply speak or type the item you’re looking for and Duck Pack & Track will tell you the box it is in.
It’s that easy!

Lots of great features!
Searching for something is easy. I’m not sure I would pay the $12-15 these cost retail. I got them on clearance and was surprised how much they can do in for me with the app.
The label has a strong clue and seems to be staying even applied to plastic contractor trash bags. The option to take a picture is nice. Being able to easily edit the content if you remove or add something is wonderful.
Only negative is there only being one label for each box. I’m one who has always labeled the top (in 2 places) and all 4 sides of the box. You can still do that! If you label them #1, #2, #3 it would be pretty quick but for many boxes doing a label and writing on it would be more hassle than it’s worth. Save money and only use it on boxes with lots of different items in it.
Overall I am very pleased with what the app does and how easy it is to use!
I can’t say enough good things about this app/product. We’re military so we’ve moved, a lot. I am a self proclaimed amazing packer/organizer but this app/product changed the game for me. We packed up our house at the end of August and just got our pod back last week. This app has been a LIFE SAVER! We moved into a home with less storage in the kitchen, closets etc., this has helped us to just store the unneeded boxes/items without opening and going through it all! The “scab and find a box features are by far my favorites, I’ve been able to walk right up to a box/tub, get scan it, get exactly what I need out, close it back up. My husband said he would pay $20 for this app plus the labels. We will definitely be using for all our future moves.
Try it you will like it
As a senior citizen making the downsizing move l, P&T was a huge success. There is a bit of a learning curve at the beginning but stay with it and hopefully you will appreciate it as much as I did. A real plus and surprise is that I’m still using the same labeled boxes for storage after the move, I’m just moving different items into the labeled boxes and changing items on my mobile lists. Then I do my P&T search for items in storage. P&T is well worth the money and time it takes to use it.
I ended up using over 100 labels.
A few tips:
-Be as specific as time allows as you write down the contents on your mobile list and take a picture of the type of box.
- As you use the sheets of labels, fully number all 4 labels on each sheet so you don’t lose track of your numbering system as well as the first number on the next sheet.
-fill out as much of the paper label as you can before sticking it on the box. Not necessary to write specific items on the label just where the box should go
-be sure to watch the video several times. We never quite understood what we should write for the 2 lines of the descriptive names.
-We decided typing was easier than speaking but appreciated having the choice
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
