My Household Inventory
Creating a household inventory sounds like it can be a lot of work, but it can come in handy. (And a little spring cleaning never hurt - no matter what time of year.)
While it is advisable to do an inventory of your entire household,, start by doing what you can now. Consider dividing up the rest of your home on a time line. For example, do the living room now, the kitchen next month, your bedroom the month after, and your child's bedroom the month after that -- setting reminders on your computer or in your diary to keep on track.
As items are purchased or given to you as a gift, add them to the list immediately.
You can complete your household inventory on the computer, or print it out and walk around your home with the paper version.
