Open to buy is a method of planning and controlling retail inventory. Calculate your opening inventory balance (in units or dollars), add the in-coming (already ordered) inventory and subtract your projected sales for the period...then compare that number to your desired ending inventory amount...the difference is how much you are open to buy (inventory that should be ordered). So if you start with 100,000 and have 10,000 on order and expect sales to be 40,000 and you want your ending inventory to be 90,000...You are open to buy 20,000 90- (100 + 10 - 40) = 20
