One of my "40-Before-40" items that I want to complete before I turn 40 is complete a Household Inventory Notebook. A good home managers job is to keep a household inventory of all of the household furnishings and other personal possessions.
This inventory provides a recond for insurance purposed and owner identification in case of loss. There are several ways to do an inventory, I have decided to create an inventory notebook to record the contents of each room. It will be a consuming task but one that will be well worth it in case of a loss.
I decided that the best way to break down this task is to start one room at a time. This week, I will start with the kitchen. Here are the steps that I am going to take:
Take pictures of the room from all angles. Take pictures instead cabinets and drawers. Here are the pictures that I took....
Send pictures to be printed.
Write serial numbers/model numbers of all applicances. Entered onto a spreadsheet.
4. Include paint sample chip for touch up purposes. I have all of our cans labeled in the garage. Write down mix number/brand beside paint chip & where I purchased the paint.
Place everything in notebook under the Kitchen/Dining Room area. If I have time, I may tackle the Living Room as well.
I figure that if I tackle a room every day, I might get it done before my 40th birthday!
