For days we’ve been hearing and reading about new year’s resolutions. Personal resolutions. But what about your house? Is there such a thing as a home resolution? There is when it comes to things to do around the home. Lorene Bartos states in her blog, Resolutions around the home, that there are some key things that should be listed as a new year resolution.
As I often recommend, she says, “…take or update your home inventory. Do you know what is in each room and the value of each item? You might be surprised when you add it all up — what you have and what it is worth if you would have to replace it because of fire or other disaster.”
Any time is a good time to create your home inventory, so why not now? Make it a resolution. You’ll be glad you did when you’re struggling to remember everything you USED to own after a major loss.
It’s as easy as putting it on your list of resolutions. Be sure to determine a deadline. If you haven’t done it by your assigned date, contact a nationally certified inventory professional to do it for you. Then next December, you can look back over the year, and realize how much peace of mind you created for yourself.
