Start your home inventory by making a list of your possessions, describing each item, and noting the make and model and where each item was purchased. Include sales receipts, purchase contracts and appraisals if you have them, too. Organize clothing into categories for easier reference.
A few home inventory organization tips:
Remember to list big-ticket items like jewelry, artwork and collectibles.
Take pictures of rooms and important individual items.
Videotape your home by walking through it and describing the contents throughout the house.
Save an inventory list on your personal computer and store it on a separate disk or drive.
Put all your photos, lists and videotape documentation in a safe deposit box.
