Sample Home Inventory Lists: Helpful Reminders

These forms may help you remember what was in your home. This will be crucial in the event of a theft, natural disaster or fire.

These lists can also come in handy when selecting items for your wedding gift registry.

WHN TIP: But I Can't Remember What Was Where!

If you have a hard time remembering what you had, ask friends who have been at your house for special celebrations, parties or holidays to send you pictures of those events. Look at the background of the picture - often much of the room has been captured. This will help jog your memory.
