Preparing for twice a month shipping, PHS is here to help organize supplies

Getting Organized for Easy Ordering

With the changes to the PHS shipping policy going into effect in January 2018, we want to do all we can to ensure this is an easy transition. Click here to read about the changes to the shipping policy if you missed the letter in the mail.

The best way to get started is to think about how you organize and store all of your equipment and supplies. Getting everything organized in a way that helps you efficiently assess what you have and what you need will give you confidence when placing your monthly order.
