Cover One Room at a Time One way to complete your inventory is to tackle a different room of your home each week until everything's listed. Record your high-valued items, such as jewelry, silverware, special collections, antiques, paintings and artwork.

Then list furniture, carpeting, electronics like TVs, stereo equipment and computers. Remember clothing, draperies, wall hangings, rugs, CDs, tapes, pots and pans, linens, tools, lamps and appliances that weren't included in the purchase of your home.

Open drawers, cupboards and closets, and record what's inside. Open toolboxes, china cabinets and storage bins and include their contents.

Use a Camera or Video Camera Supplement your inventory with photos or a videotape of your belongings.

These will provide further proof of ownership and add detail to your written descriptions. They also help document each item's condition and size.

Videotape or take wide-angle photos of entire rooms, which will help show the magnitude of a loss. If you use a video camera, you can record audio descriptions and make special comments. Take individual, close-up shots of expensive items and group shots of lower-value items. Zoom in on labels and special features, like signatures on artwork or serial numbers on appliances and electronics. Be sure to date each photo or use the date imprint function on your video camera.

When you inventory outdoor items, include bicycles, sporting goods, yard equipment and any other articles kept outside. While you're outside, it's also a good idea to photograph each side of your home's exterior. Include your carport and other structures like a storage shed. Capture rare trees or shrubs and unusual landscaping. These things aren't considered personal property, but it will be helpful to have a record of their appearance in case of a loss.

After You've Completed Your Inventory

Once you've completed your inventory, copy everything, including lists, appraisals, receipts, videotapes, disks and computer printouts, and have an extra set of photos developed. Store one inventory packet off premises. A safe deposit box is the most secure location, or ask a friend or relative to keep a copy.

Be sure to update your inventory packet every four to six months. In the meantime, save receipts for any new items you'll need to add. If you make a major purchase, update your inventory as soon as possible. And remember to delete items you no longer have.
