We recently stumbled upon Jessica L. Rosenkranz's website. We really like the Rhode Island graphic designer's books and prints from Headless Press. . .but what made us laugh out loud was the "list of the things in the house that belong to Jess."
Jess writes that she compiled the list when for some reason [I] counted how many cups I had and then was thinking about the absurdity of a person living alone having 39 cups, but how they all had their places. Most people would probably have equally absurd lists if they took the time to count everything, and I enjoy the stories objects tell about their owners. Her list resulted in a book called Inventory.
It made us realize that although we own less than anyone we know, a list of our belongings would still be pretty long.
We also realized that we really should have a home inventory (including photos) for insurance purposes. Have you done one?
