Cataloguing your possessions helps you manage your belongings and quite simply lets you know what you own. We keep discovering new reasons why our app users love keeping a list of their important items.

Precious Lists creates an inventory of items you own and keeps track of their location, condition, and value. You can catalogue everything you own or select groups of important possessions.

Our app makes this daunting task super easy, with numerous benefits that make it worth the effort.

1. Better Organisation: One of the primary benefits of cataloguing your possessions is better organisation. When you have a comprehensive list of everything you own, you can easily find what you need and avoid clutter. Cataloguing allows you to group items together based on their type or location, making it easier to find and access them

2. Insurance Coverage: Another benefit of cataloguing your possessions is that it can help you ensure that your insurance coverage is adequate. When you have a complete list of your possessions, you can calculate their total value and ensure that you have adequate coverage for them. In case of theft or damage, you can easily provide evidence of ownership and value to your insurance company, making the claims process easier and smoother.

3. Moving Made Easy: Cataloguing your possessions can also make moving easier. When you know exactly what you own, you can plan your move better, ensuring that you have adequate packing materials and space. Moreover, it makes it easier to keep track of your belongings during the move, ensuring that nothing gets lost or damaged.

4. Tracking Maintenance and Repairs: Cataloguing your possessions can also help you keep track of maintenance and repairs. By documenting the condition of your belongings, you can track when they need maintenance or repairs, ensuring that they remain in good working condition. This can help you save money in the long run by preventing costly repairs or replacements.

5. Simplify Estate Planning: Cataloguing your possessions can also simplify estate planning. When you have a comprehensive list of your possessions, it makes it easier to distribute your assets after your passing. This can help avoid disputes among your heirs and ensure that your possessions are distributed as per your wishes.

6. Keep memories and stories alive: The precious Lists app gives you space to record the story and memories behind each piece. Don’t let precious memories slip away – keep a personal and updated record of all the items that hold a special place in your heart. Remember the story behind that beautiful art deco lamp gifted to you by Aunt June? By keeping a record, you can ensure that these cherished items and the stories behind them are preserved for future generations to appreciate.

7.Prevent Duplicate Purchases: Finally, cataloguing your possessions can help prevent duplicate purchases. When you know exactly what you own, you can avoid buying items that you already have, saving you time and money. If you’re a collector you can easily see what your collection is missing or what you can sell and swap to improve your own collection.

Cataloguing your possessions can have numerous benefits, including better organisation, adequate insurance coverage, easier moving, tracking maintenance and repairs, simplified estate planning, and preventing duplicate purchases. Try the app today on a 14 day free trial to discover just how easy it is to list your precious items and unlock all these benefits.
