File the claim first.. You have a contractual responsibility under your insurance policy (contract to file in a timely manner.
The will ask you a list of items damaged.. tell them you are working on getting a list together.. the memorabilia.. go on line and check pricing, order it, give them a paid receipt.. and they Will pay.. you do have a replacement cost policy.. right??
then it's new for old with a paid receipt.
as for the regular personal items.. get out the local JC Penneys, Sears, whatever and go shopping.. If you don't like to.. find a Mom, gf, etc... make a list and send them.. you must know someone that likes to shop!!books.. paperbacks.. hit amazon.com.. Also make sure you have the receipt for the repair for the broken pipe repair.. keep track of everyone's time.. Sometimes, the company will count time spent against your deductible... it's worth a shot..
