Create a Home Inventory List
If your belongings were lost in a fire would you know how to begin putting your life back together? Would you remember exactly how many pieces of China you own or the model number of your expensive vacuum cleaner? Compiling a list of your belongings now can help you immediately know what needs to be replace during a disaster, when it hard to remember. Typically, after a disaster, insurance companies will ask for a list of everything lost. Having a created list can save time and energy during a very emotional time.
Creating an inventory list can be as simple as taking pictures with your phone or camera then uploading them to a cloud-based storage or to your email. This method assures the list will be accessible when needed. The list should also include the date purchased and the purchased price. Sometimes these things can be easier said than done so there are computer software and apps available on IOS and Android that can assist with the process.
