SKU - worth it or waste of time

I like to plan and organize, so the concept of a SKU sounds like a good idea - especially for running reports, etc. My store has relatively few items at the moment, but I'm ever adding to my inventory. I think that if a SKU would be better in the long run, I should get on it now, so I don't have to go back and add them later. But, I don't know what I don't know. 

So - SKU: worth it or a waste of time?

If you use SKU - why do you? What does it help with? Any advice for setting up a SKU system?

If you've tried it and found it a waste of time - why so?

Thanks!

It's hard to say for sure. SKU codes have very limited use on MP but they can be useful if you have many listings with very similar names and they shouldn't add that much extra work. I have programmed my own work database to generate SKU codes automatically so all I have to do is copy and paste to the listing form. I only takes a few seconds that way.

SKU is for your own reference only so make sure you choose codes that are easy to read at a glance.
