*50 Dollarz Best Buy G/C G!VE-it-AWAY* Do You Have a Home Inventory?

I have never really cared for insurance but my wife’s father was an insurance man and she was fully indoctrinated. As a result, we have the insurance that we need to protect us against disasters. The big problem with having homeowners or renters insurance, is remembering everything you own if a claim needs to be filed. Remembering each of our prized possessions when all you have is a pile of ashes is a mortifying task.

The economy forced us to combine two households and that means we have lots of stuff to replace. Proving ownership to our insurance company requires a good listing of what we own.  Recording ownership of TVs, Xboxes, streaming players, jewelry and shoes used to be a monumental and nearly impossible task.

Fortunately, the National Association of Insurance Commissioners provides an incredibly amazing app to create an inventory of everything you own. The tool is available as an iPhone or Android application and is called myHOME Scr.APP.book.  The best thing about this app is from the NAIC is that it’s FREE, no charge, zip, nada.

I jumped at the opportunity to download the FREE myHOME Scr.APP.book app from naic.org and found that the app was exceptionally easy to use. I could list each item and then use the phone to take a picture of the item. The app lets you capture images, descriptions, bar codes and serial numbers.  I was then allowed to store the information electronically for safekeeping.

The app has a very helpful section on how to create a home inventory in addition to a helpful and categorized section on tips. I was able to enter my inventory by rooms, at my own pace. It was surprising to realize how many valuable books and electronic accessories I owned.

I highly recommend that you download the FREE myHOME Scr.APP.book app from naic.org and begin creating an inventory of your possessions. A good inventory will also help you determine whether your policy will cover all your household items. No one wants to have their lives affected by any disaster and having an accurate inventory of your possessions will help you be prepared. Remember, it’s FREE.
