Have you ever thought about doing an inventory of your home? If you have, I’m sharing 3 methods on how to below. If not, maybe you’ve never even thought about why you would need to.
It’s something that we all pay for, but hope to never have to use, right? I sleep better at night knowing that if some catastrophe does happen, we won’t be without financial help to rebuild, but I still hope I never have to use it. That being said, when those times do happen to families, it’s often hard to sift through the paperwork of what was lost. I can’t imagine the type of state I would be in, but I know it would be hard for me to remember everything in every room – even the big things.
That’s why you need a Home Inventory, now let’s look at a few ways to do one.
There are a few paper checklist printables that you can find by searching Google. A paper checklist is simple, but a little harder to update. It’s also important to keep that paper in a safe place – unless you have a fireproof safe, it’s really not going to do you a lot of good in your home in the case of an emergency.
Pictures are worth a thousand words! Pictures are great, especially if they are saved digitally but just make sure to have them saved somewhere other than on a computer that’s in the home. It’s also easy to go through your home snapping pictures and easy to update too.
