    At the end of the day, dont forget that insurance companies will reimburse based on current market value... not what you paid. Keeping records of what you paid is great as a historical document, but if you paid £100 for a bumblebee keychain they will still only give you X% of the £3.99 it's currently worth. At the point of loss you will need to scour the webz to see the current selling prices... a huge job if you have a large collection, but worth the effort. Right I'm off to extinguish all naked flames as it seems that the "house burning down" is everyones greatest worry. On that point... ensure you have an offsite backup of your records... no good if they go up in flames too!
