This software will help you create a room-by-room inventory of your personal possessions. Having an up-to-date home inventory will help you:
* Purchase enough insurance to replace the things you own.
* Get your insurance claims settled faster.
* Substantiate losses for your income tax return.
You can always simply make a list in a notebook and save receipts and photos in a file. This software, however, should make this task fun and simple. More importantly, with the click of your mouse, you can update this list as you buy or eliminate personal possessions.
The advice to “document your possessions before you suffer a loss from a fire, hurricane, burglary or other disaster” is valuable. Our site programmer who recently lost his home in a fire wholeheartedly agrees with the mission of this software.
If you haven’t yet completed a home inventory, consider letting Know Your Stuff help you with this task. It is available for both Windows and Mac operating systems.
Thanks to reader Samir, for calling this to our attention.
