Editors' review

No one wants to think about floods, fires, or theft, but these terrible things can and do happen. Having an up-to-date home inventory can make thousands of dollars' worth of difference when it comes to filing insurance claims after a disaster. Home Inventory Spreadsheet is a basic Excel spreadsheet that can help you make a list of your most important possessions and their worth. Although this isn't really anything you couldn't do on your own with Excel, the spreadsheet has a nice layout that makes it easy to get started.

The spreadsheet organizes your possessions by room, breaking down the huge task of creating an inventory into more manageable steps. For each item there are columns in which to list a description, purchase information, condition and estimated value, the model and serial number, and any notes. There's also a field where you can enter the file name of a photo of each item; keeping a photo inventory along with the spreadsheet will make the claims process easier. There's a space for your contact information and that of your insurance agent, and that's pretty much it. Home Inventory Spreadsheet really is just a spreadsheet, and it doesn't have a Help file or very much in the way of features. But that's what we like about it; the fact that it's just a spreadsheet makes it relatively small, highly portable, and easy to use.

We think this is a great choice for anyone who wants to create a home inventory but is wary of large software packages designed specifically for this purpose.

    "Great Inventory Manager"

    June 15, 2011   |   By mrsbeen

    Version: Home Inventory Spreadsheet 1.1

    Pros

    Is exactly what you need for home inventory

    Cons

    Agree, it's more of a template than a program

    "A file that you can type your inventory in"

    February 26, 2011   |   By blurleighton

    Version: Home Inventory Spreadsheet 1.1

    Pros

    - Its a pretty small file (quick to download)
    - A few items are already typed out in the list

    Cons

    - I wouldn't consider it a program
    - Requires typing in all the information you wish to add
    - Microsoft Excel must be installed

    Summary

    Looking at the screenshot I thought this was a spreadsheet application with specialized features for home inventory. (Actually its just a Microsoft Excel file).

    It could help when typing up inventory but I'd rather use a more specialized program than Microsoft Excel. There are now quicker and easier ways to do home inventory.

    Not even worth pressing the download button

    by just typing in 'home inventory' in the search i found really nice and FREE programs for keeping track of my furniture etc. I thank whoever took their time to type this up but frankly it now serves no practical purpose.
