During calm or ordinary times, we could all probably rattle off a pretty good list of things in our homes – often right down to the minor details. But when a crisis occurs – like theft or fire – and we are under stress – we will forget what and how much stuff we had.
The best way to always remember your stuff is to keep a record of it – and there are apps for that! Here are two for iPHONES and two for Android phones that you might find useful.
Home Inventory. This inventory app allows you to take home inventory data with your iPHONE and automatically synchronizes the data to the master program on your computer so you can access a list of everything you own from anywhere.
MyStuff2 app keeps track of all your belongings including your music, movies, books, games, collector items, basically anything you consider important enough to keep track of by simply recording items with your iPHONE using a barcode scanner.
Home Inventory Organizer app lets users create and organize a complete inventory of valuable items by room. Simply record the item with your Android phone, snap a photo, then you can email or print a copy of the complete list if needed.
Movie Collection + Inventory is ideal for movie buffs - organize DVDs and blu-rays that uses an imported movie catalog to create your film inventory with your Android. This app has fun features and, if loan tend to loan out your movies, you can keep track of them with the persons information.
For both, Know Your Stuff is the insurance industry program for home and phone. Unlike the apps above, this one is free, easy and uses online storage to store your data.
Finally, check with your insurance company, mine has a personal digital locker app that allows you to record all your items and save them to a cloud – you can catalog things by room, add photos, and more! According to my agent, it's easy, secure (not even he can access info) and it's free.
