Take a picture, it will last longer, just do not lose it. What do I mean by that? Simple. Do an annual inventory by taking pictures of your stuff. It is fast, and you do not need a fancy camera to take pictures with. Just your phone and your computer, but first, make sure that your phone does not load these special photos to Google (my phone automatically does that), or you may have someone doing a little shopping in your home without your permission.
Go room by room, and start clicking away. Open up the closets, your drawers (yes, your unmentionables), nooks, crannies, every inch of your home. Download the pictures to a special disk and place in your safety deposit box. You may also purchase a special cloud for them too (choose one with a 2-entry security entrance (Your password and a special recognition question)). Once done, you need to update once a year.
The reason you take these precautions, is so if you lose all your stuff due to disaster of any type. It may not bring back your stuff, but at least the insurance company can pay your properly.
While you are at it: Take a picture of your loved ones, especially children and the elderly. Update those every 6 months. Children are taken by strangers or angry relatives, and older people (especially those with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease) tend to run off confused of their surroundings.
