How much is your stuff worth?

06/18/2010

It's important to figure out how much money it would take to replace your personal items before you buy renters' insurance. That information will come in handy in case your possessions are damaged or stolen. One of the best ways to do this is to take an inventory, either with pen and paper or by making a video recording of the contents of your apartment.

To help you start thinking about the kinds of items you own and to estimate their total value, try Shelter's personal property calculator. When you've finished, you can click "Print" in the upper right-hand corner to print and save a copy for your personal records.
