This form is designed to be used in conjunction with the home inventory checklist that I've also created.
You use the checklist to help jog your memory to help you fill out this form for all the important and/or expensive items in your home that should be included in your personal home inventory. Obviously, print out however many pages of this form you need to list the items within your inventory.
You don't have to get too meticulous with this inventory, especially at first. If you did you'd become overwhelmed quickly. Instead, make sure you document the most expensive items in your home so that if you need to call upon insurance to replace them you have a good list to work from.
There is a section on the form to place a serial number. You should only fill this out if the item is an electronic, or appliance, and it has one.
In addition, the form has a short area for each item to write a description or other notes. Some ideas of information you could place in this section include:
