Nickel asked his readers if they have a home inventory -- a listing of what's in their home. Such a list would be used to get reimbursed by your insurance company in case fire, flood, etc. damaged all or most of what's in your home.
We don't have a listing of what's contained in our home (that would take quite some time to complete!), but we do have a home inventory. The summer before last, I videotaped our home room by room, detailing what we owned, where any especially valuable items were kept, and so on. I then took the take to work and keep it in my desk. If anything ever happens to our home, I can review the tape with the insurance company and decide upon replacement costs.
The video was much easier to make than a list of everything in the home -- it took me less than an hour (imagine showing someone your home, though in a bit more detail, and you'll know what I have on tape.) Though this reminds me that I probably need to update the video this year. After all, things change a bit in that amount of time.
How about you? Do you have a home inventory for insurance purposes?
