Home is where the heart is, but it is also where we keep lots of stuff. If you were hit with a fire or hurricane tomorrow, would you have an accurate assessment of all of the valuables in your home?
Taking a home inventory is a tedious task, but let your computer help you lighten the load a little. This free program, provided at KnowYourStuff.org, guides you through the task. You go from generalities about the house to insurance information to a room-by-room inventory.
The program makes it easy and you can fill out as much or as little as you like. It even has an easy way to put in photos and to scan in sales receipts. When you finish your inventory, the program will give you a summary of items and costs. You can even print out the complete inventory and store it in an off-site location or send it to your insurance agent.
Everything is stored on your own computer, so you don't have to worry about giving your information to some website owner.
Completing a home inventory will give you a good feeling and after you take stock of everything that you own, you can't help but feel grateful.
