Today my husband left for yet another out of town trip (hopefully the last one). I got busy with catching up on housework because my boss went on vacation last week and I haven't had a day off in 10 days.
At some point I started thinking some paranoid thoughts along the lines of "what if our stuff got stolen?" and I decided to spend the remainder of the day recording serial numbers and and taking photos.
I have to say....you should do it. Whoever you are. It's a little bit of a pain in the ass, but really not too bad and my goodness, think of the hours and hours of headaches you will be saving on the other end.
I started in my office and just went room to room meticulously copying down serial numbers off of any and all electronic devices and following up with a digital picture.
I also took photos of my "stuff" because my memory is bad and it would be helpful to have photos of my artwork and books and stuff.
At the end of the project, I copied my digital camera pictures onto two CDs; one to store at home and one at work.
Take half a day and do this. You will feel much better and be waaaay ahead of the game if, god forbid, anything should happen.
