Vital Records - Household Inventory Sheets!

If your home were to burn down today,
would you have any proof of your posessions?
Would you have a record of what you would need
to replace as well as the value of that item?
If your answer was, "NO!" no worries.
After today, you will have that fixed!
Today's Assignment:
Household Inventory Sheets
Here's what you'll find on the sheet:
A Photo
A Description
A Brief History of the Item
Who Will Get the Item When You're Gone
An Appraisal
The Centimental Value
as well as
A Record of Where It Is Stored.
Make a copy for each of the items you would like
to replace as well as the one's that you would like to
pass down to family and friends.
It's also a great idea to make a video showing
the items you will be keeping a record of.
Keep a copy of this in a safety deposit box or
make a couple extra copies to keep at a
parent or sibblings home.
You will also want to include a copy of your
insurance records if you haven't already.
If you are renting, you will want to add a copy
of your renters insurance policy as well.
I'm also including a section for you to add 
the Deeds you have.
Here it is:
Homeowner's Insurance:
(These were included in an earlier post.)
Renter's Insurance Records:
Just add a copy of your insurance policy.
Your Household Inventory Sheets
will take you a little bit of time to put together
the first time,
but it will be worth it . . . I Promise!
From now on, just plan on taking a photo of the
important things you bring into your home.
Take a few minutes to record the information on your
Household Inventory Record Sheet
and you'll be good to go!
Here's the PDF:
There is a lot of information included in this week's assignment.
Set aside a few minutes every day to work
on completing each of the pages
and it won't seem so overwhelming!
Best of LUCK!
