How to Create your Home Inventory
Admit it, in the case of a fire or unwanted disaster if your household items get damaged, there are possibilities that you may not be able to recall all your household items with its prices. It could cost you heavy monetary damage. But if you have been more considerate towards your household items, and have created your home inventory, you can claim your damaged or deceased items from the insurance company. “But isn’t it a boring task to list all the items, categorize it and then tag it with prices?”- you may ask? Well, the answer is: it’s not boring if you have the right tools to create your home inventory. In fact, the right tool can aid you in claiming your valuable items in case of any emergency. Also, don’t worry if you don’t have a complete inventory because it is better to have something than nothing. In this article, we are going to learn how to build a home inventory. Without further ado, let’s get started. Steps to Create a Home Inventory Step 1: Start with the easy spots of your house You don’t want to get discouraged at the starting of your inventory creation process, so start with a small section of your house. You can start with your kitchen cabinet or sports equipment closet rather than directly jumping onto the garage items or any other section of your house which is piled with clutter. Step 2: Don’t Forget about Off-site Items Insurance companies also count your off-site items into consideration in the case of any casualty. So, make sure that you also include the items you have put into the self-storage facility. Step 3: Explain Basic Information of Every item It is possible that when you are claiming your item and you find out that you hadn’t mentioned the price of a particular item while creating inventory. And because of that, you may not be able to claim the actual money. So, you might want to list your items with basic details like purchase date, price, make and model, and serial number. Step 4: List the Latest Purchases first: While making your home inventory, you may want to add recent purchases into the list first. Because figuring out about your old possessions might take some time and it may frustrate you. So, be done with the latest stuff and secure it in your list. Step 5: Make General Categories of Clothing Listing your clothes to the inventory list might be tedious. So, divide them into categories like jeans, shirts, belts, watches, etc. Add particular items to the category labeling “6 pairs of shoes”, “ 3 watches”, “9 shirts” and so on. Step 6: Keep Proof of Value Keep track of your sales receipt, purchase contracts, and appraisals with your home inventory list. Leverage Technology to Your Advantage A simple paper and pen would be enough but if you have technology on your side, the whole procedure becomes less clumsy. Take Photo: Lists are good, but for backup, it would be advisable you use a mobile phone camera or digital camera to capture the item. You can add a description to the particular item. Take snaps of the whole room, the spot your items reside, the particular item, closet, kitchen cabinet, anything, and describe it. Tape it: Apart from the photos, you can also walk across the locations of the items and shoot a video describing each item briefly. This could work as a backup in the case of your pen-paper made inventory has flaws. Use mobile apps: Today there are lots of home inventory mobile apps are out there in the app store and play store. And they are really handy. These apps for home inventory management let you take photos; add prices, serial numbers, and descriptions; and describe the item. Also, you can store your inventory in the cloud. So, you have access to your inventory when and where you want. Some Important Things You Should Keep in Mind after Creating Your Inventory In the case of fire, theft, or other disasters, you want your inventory safe and accessible. So keep these tips in mind once you make your home inventory. -As mentioned earlier, use a mobile app for backup. Keep a copy of your inventory on the cloud or external storage device. -Know your app better so you can retrieve your data when you need it. -Keep a copy of your home inventory at your friend’s house or relative. You can also use a safe deposit box. -Always update your inventory whenever you buy a new thing in the house. All in all, having a clear-cut home inventory saves you in hard times. I hope this guide might help you understand the home inventory creation process.
Ultimate T-Shirt Revamp
LUV THIS plain ole t-shirt revamp into a cute summer dress! While this one is turquoise, mine is going to be bright and pink for summer! You should totally do the same thing and then share your pics on here! It's all part of Vingle My Summer Collection, which you can follow here. Use a TOO-BIG-FOR-YOU t-shirt and put it on inside-out. This allows you to mark where your shoulders begin with chalk. Just make a mark. Make a straight line from the shoulder mark to the armpit on the sleeve. Cut along the line you just made. Trim off the excess of the part you cut off to make the sleeve smaller and more comfortable your your arm. Pin and stitch to the shirt. Don't freak out because of the gaping hole at the bottom of the armpit and shirt. Stitch up the hole below the armpit. You can leave the sleeves alone at this point OR you can add some elastic to ruche them. Using your zig-zag stitch, sew the strip of elastic on the inside of the sleeve. This should go from the bottom of the sleeve to the shoulder. Don't make it too tight or it will look awful! Using a longer piece of elastic, measure the length and tightness you want to achieve with your dress. Again, don't make it too tight, it's supposed to be gently ruched. Sew it into the shirt to create the waistline you want--as high or low as you like. All that's left is to add any detailing you want such as lace or beads. I prefer simplicity and plan to throw on a cute necklace and some flats for summer. What are you going to do? For more cute t-shirt ideas, click here.
Best Summer Beach Towel Hack - DIY
This is probably going to be the BEST DIY HACK I have seen/done all Summer! Look at this easy-to-sew project that you are definitely going to want to make before Friday! You know the drill by now... Supplies Needed: 2 beach towels (that are the same) Polyester fiberfill Fabric Velcro Tools Needed: Scissors Sewing machine Pins Instructions: 1. Lay out one towel, and then place the second one perpendicular to the first, lining up one edge. 2. Cut the second towel, making a rectangle that, folded over, will form your pillow. 3. Fold this rectangle in half, sew three sides and part of the fourth, leaving a hole to fill with pillow stuffing. 4. Add polyester fiberfill to the pillow, then sew the open edge. 5. Cut two strips of fabric for your straps. Adjust the size to the length you prefer, just remember you will lose about an inch on each end where it attaches to the towel. 6. Fold your strips in half lengthwise with the right side facing in, and sew along the long edge. 7. Flip the strap right-side out so the pattern is on the outside. 8. Pin the pillow to the unaltered towel, and sew it in place. 9. Roll the towel around the pillow. If it’s long, fold it in half. 10. Pin the straps and Velcro on the appropriate parts of the towel (so that it functions like a bag). 11. Cut out a rectangle of fabric to create a pocket on the side of the “bag,” making sure to iron down the edges to create a hem. 12. Sew the side that will be the top of the pocket. 13. Pin your pocket to the towel while it’s still wrapped up and in its bag form. 14. Now that everything is pinned in place, unroll the towel and sew all of the pieces to secure them to the towel. Fold the rectangle you just created in half, sew three sides and a little bit of the fourth, leaving a hole to fill with pillow stuffing. Add polyester fiberfill to the pillow, and then sew the open edge. Pillow complete! Next, cut two strips of fabric for your straps. Adjust the size to the length you prefer by laying them over your shoulder. Remember you will lose about an inch on each end where it attaches to the towel. Now fold your strips in half lengthwise with the right side facing in, and sew along the long edge. Flip the straps right-side out so the pattern is on the outside. You might want to iron your straps at this point. Flipping them right side out can create some wrinkles. Now it’s time to construct your towel. Attach the pillow to your unaltered towel with pins, and then sew it in place. Next, we’ll add all of the pieces to make it a functional bag. Roll the towel around the pillow. If it’s long like ours, fold it in half. Pin the straps and Velcro on the appropriate parts of the towel. All great bags have pockets, so we’re making one to carry sunscreen, sunnies and poolside beverages. Cut out a rectangle of fabric to create your pocket on the side of the “bag,” making sure to iron down the edges to create a hem. Sew the side that will be the top of the pocket. Pin your pocket to the towel while it’s still wrapped up and in its bag form. Now that everything is pinned in place, unroll the towel and sew all of the pieces to secure them to the towel. You are FINISHED! Now all you need is a place to go, like a lake or a beach or a water park or even your backyard! Click here to see more summer tips and tricks and projects!
