UPDATED LINKS: Our popular Personal Property Inventory Spreadsheet now has a companion utility that helps fill in the prices using popular online stores! Although you can still download the stand alone spreadsheet, this little tool can save a lot of time when filling in prices and INCLUDES the spreadsheet as a base to start with.
 
Although we do offer tips that can help find pricing (such as using store registries either online or using a pricing scanner at the store) you still have to enter it all manually into the spreadsheet which can be a real drag. A survivor who lost their home in the 2012 Waldo Canyon Fire was going through this process and as a software developer wrote a COMPLETELY FREE little utility that helps find pricing online.
 
With a grant from CARe he was able to develop it into a website which you can access for free at: http://www.personalpropertypricing.com/
  
Our Personal Property Inventory Spreadsheet was originally compiled by Community Assisting Recovery, Inc. in conjunction with disaster survivors from multiple disasters who donated their inventory lists. We would like to thank everyone involved in helping make this tedious process a little easier to manage.
