Packaging Inventory

We are looking into setting up inventory to track unique packaging for
some of our products. We are looking to setup the items as being in a
separate warehouse, with a unique part class, and using backflushing.
Pretty standard stuff, except, we really do not want to get into
inventorying / Cycle counting packaging.

How do other companies handle packaging in general?

Do you inventory?

Do you simply purchase when it physically looks low (Adhoc)?

Do you use a combination?
