Our local radio station did a segment a few days ago about most prized possessions. It stemmed from a listener email about a house fire and the things that her husband chose to save before getting the heck out of there. Fiance and I have had this conversation before and he always picks the electronics (TV’s, laptops, iphones, etc…). I would personally go for the safe that holds our livelihood (harddrives with the last 10 years of FI’s work on them, savings bonds that would allow us to start over, important paper work, etc…). To me, everything else is replaceable.
So, in the event the unforeseen happened and you were only able to save one thing (family members and pets not included) what would it be?

for me it would be my paperwork file which has wedding certificate (we married in a foriegn 3rd world country so this is very important document for me), our passports, insurance, deeds etc
“things” like computers and tvs are replacable

Do pets count? ‘Cause I’d grab my doggie and fly the heck out of the house! Everything else I couldn’t care less about, really, when put into perspective.

Oops, I saw that pets are no included. GO READING COMPREHENSION!

That is a very good question. My cat? haha I would obviously save him but for my most important item probably my laptop and my external hard drive because that has ALL of the information I need to open all my accounts and such. Oh wait I lied. I would save my camera and my laptop 🙂 I’m cheating. My camera is the thing that makes me money and is my first BIG purchase with my very own money

My external harddrive where I have all my music and photos.

No pets and no family members. We’re assuming they are already safe!

Photos, emotional items like family herilooms and important papers.
We had to evecuate for a fire this summer and honestly you grab what you can. We had a bag with apples, oatmeal, contact solution, and a trivet. haha, nothing of value and all replaceable but you panic and just grab stuff. We have a good system now as we grabbed a lot of things like that and also had a lot of repetition.

Honestly I would grab my cell phone and purse. My purse is a one stop shop, I have everything I need in there! House records if I had time but they can be re-created.

My external hard drive. My data from my research is backed up on it!
My passport, birth certificate, etc. are in a fireproof safe, so they can stay!

If I could only grab one thing it would be my laptop. this is absolutely not replaceable because of all the information, photos and important stuff stored on it. IMO a passport is easy to replace you just apply for new one but the data on my laptop would be impossible to replace

Everything in our home is pretty much replaceable. Except our wedding rings and the contents of our fire safe. Those would be my priorities.
