Create an insurance inventory list of the items in your home. If you ever need to make an insurance claim, having a list may make the process easier. An easy way to make the list is to video each room in your home, including inside closets, cupboards, the garage (and shed). Zoom in on the make and model numbers for appliances, electronics and other expensive items. Update your video inventory at least once a year and store the recording somewhere outside your home.
