Is your home getting cluttered and you never seem to know where you’ve put things? Or maybe you have a garage or loft full of unlabelled boxes, and you’re dreading the time where you must brave the mammoth task of sorting it all out? Fear not – there’s always a way to make life easier now, and technology has provided us all with a cheap and easy way to keep an inventory that you can update and save with a minimal amount of effort and that by downloading a home inventory app.
Home Inventory – Why Keep One? –
The general reason for checklists or any list is because of a particular task we need to do – so why would we choose to make a list of everything in our home without reason? Seems like a lot of work and more importantly, a time-consuming and dull undertaking.
Although they might initially feel like a waste of time, home inventory lists are a great way of organising your possessions and other household appliances, which helps when you need to replace things, or you’re planning on moving. Insurance companies always ask for detailed lists for contents insurance – if you have all that information on an inventory list, you’ll save yourself a lot of time by having it prepared.
And best of all, you don’t need to do everything manually. There are so many home inventory templates online, and if you want something even better, you can download a home inventory app for your mobile phone.
The Best Home Inventory Apps –
Some home inventory apps are free to download, some are a once-off payment, but you’ll never pay more than a couple of pounds for one, and the number of features that they offer are astounding.
Here are a few you should check out –
Encircle is free, and it’s available for iPhone and Android devices, and it allows you to document your items visually which you can add notes too. It’s perfect for home inventory purposes, and landlords and insurance companies use the app to streamline their inventory process.
