While you're taking the time to do some spring cleaning, why not take some time to compile an inventory of your household belongings? Creating a personal property inventory list provides you with a record of insurance coverage and valuable personal items so that if anything is lost, stolen, or destroyed, you will have easily accessible information for the police and for filing an insurance claim.
Here's a quick list of things to include on your personal property inventory list:
- A list of all your big-ticket items with pertinent facts and descriptions.
- Receipts for big-ticket items.
- Videotape and/or photos to give details about quality, appearance, and size that written descriptions cannot.
