The first day of hurricane season has arrived and I have one major to-do list on the calendar: photograph the contents of each room, closet, cabinet, and drawer of the house, plus the garage.
Since I use a digital camera, I will download the photos on an external hard drive. Hopefully I will never have to print them out for an insurance claim (especially the one of my closet!), but if necessary they will be there.
Whether or not you live on the Gulf Coast, this is a very important thing you can do to protect yourself against loss, especially after all the natural disasters which have been in the news this year. If a disaster hits, it's impossible to try to recall every item in your home, so take the time to photograph your home and its contents.
