Thank you to audreyhg for reminding everyone of the importance of a public adjuster. I have been a PA for 6 years and take great pride in being able to represent the property owner. Most of my clients would not have been able to make full repairs with the settlements offered by the insurance company. I was able to get them the full amount they needed to bring their property back to pre loss condition. However, everything being written about creating an inventory, taking pictures, scanning or keeping receipts, etc. gives the PA the backup needed to process the claim. A loss in a home is devastating - fighting the insurance company just adds to the aggravation. Take all the advice that's been given !

For anyone interested there is a great piece of software for mac that I use to catalogue a large proportion of my possessions (my books in particular) but it covers other items too, like electronics or tools. Its called delicious library and the beauty of it is that purchases can be scanned in using both the barcode or manually. The program will also provide a full description such as year of manufacturer, value etc and can be published to the web for online access. Unfortunately it is a mac only program but for those apple users out there I recommend it. It took a while to scan my 1000 or so books in but now its a quick matter to input any new items as I get them. The items are displayed as an image on a visual shelf so that its easy to identify them at a glance.
For those of us who don't always trust the cloud based services the other device I recently purchased is called a "transporter" which is a personalized cloud storage device. You would need 2, one at your house and one somewhere else such as a relatives place. With it you can back up any files straight to the second device and if any catastrophe befalls your property you can instantly access the same files on the second device remotely.

trying to incorporate the elements are hard especially when your 3 year old keeps messing with your fountain. But with a little ingenuity and some well placed shelves it can be done

When someone said they're waiting for wireless lighting, the image of an old-fashioned oil lamp jumped into my mind. I don't have one, but I do use candles for soft lighting in awkward-for-cords places. That's wireless technology for you!

That was me. I can't use candles (have a really bushy tailed cat), it is very hard to find scentless candles, and I really like to sit where I want when reading. Candle power is not very good for reading but fabulous for dining. I have become used to electric lighting, just don't want all my furniture lined up against walls, or cords running everywhere, or going to the expense of drilling holes in the floors and tunneling wiring to the walls. If we can put a man on the moon, why can't we put all men on the moon ;)
