Taking Home Inventory

Is your home properly insured?  Are you sure?  Are you really sure?  The only way to really be sure is to do a home inventory, and when is the last time you did that?

Yes, it’s daunting.  Think about all the stuff in your house.  I mean, everything.  As you’re reminded any time you move, there’s usually a lot more in your house than you realize.  That said, when purchasing insurance, you want to make sure you cover everything you own.

You could always just go room to room with a pencil and a notebook, take pictures and videos, but, to borrow a phrase, “There’s an app for that.”

KnowYourStuff.org is a website (with an app available as well) that helps you make a list of everything you own in your home and keeps track of it all in a free online database.  The great advantage to that is that if a disaster strikes your home, be it fire, flood, tornado, earthquake or whatever else, finding that notebook is one less thing to have on your mind when you need to get out of the house in a hurry.
