For those who have a home inventory, how do you go about managing one let alone getting started? Well, for most folks it means creating a simple spreadsheet in Google Docs or Microsoft Excel. Some folks record the items in their home from top to bottom using a video camcorder. Any of these methods work and if you’ve done this, you’re well-prepared, or are you?
Not everyone lives in a flood zone or in a path of a hurricane. Spreadsheets are only good if the computer you store it on is safe and secure. What happens if your spreadsheet gets corrupted or lost due to some nasty virus? How about coming home to find your desktop or laptop missing due to a burglary? If you’re smart, you’ll want to save a copy of the spreadsheet somewhere else.
Online home inventory isn’t for everyone. People develop their own methods of backing up their personal data. Whether it’s storing a USB device in a safe deposit box or storing an extra copy at a relatives home, you have to find a method that’s manageable for you. Once you start, updating it can be a chore. Who wants to run to their safe deposit box to retrieve their camcorder or USB stick every time there’s a new purchase?
