At first, I thought of a million different things – then I realized that none of them really matter, compared to the safety of my loved ones. (Perhaps I’m being affected by the very moving thread about that very brave couple dealing with cancer? Cried. Buckets.) If he counts, I would definately save our cat; after that, I would save our photographs.

A couple necklaces my mom gave me.  I’d probably grab my jewelry box and run!

My great grandparent’s wedding pictures. I have some of the ORIGINALS of their wedding in 1940 and just love them. This actually happened to her and my great grandpa at their farmhouse not long after they were married. She ran back in for her father’s barber kit. It was one of the few things she had of his. I’m not sure how big the fire was, but you know it was in a time and in a rural area where if things caught on fire, they just burned down.

My first thought was my dog.

My second thought was my ring (but I wouldn’t have to save it because it always on my hand)

My third thought is my photographs! I love my photographs so that would mean my old albums and my laptop to save all of my digital ones! But my laptop is important for a lot of other things as well!

if i HAD to grab something out the door….

wedding certificate – we were married in a foreign 3rd world country so its the only written proof of our wedding followed by passports, property deeds, wills ect

sentimental items are in a fireproof safe (ie my grandmothers st christopher, wedding rings ect)

A few items Dad has given me, the biggest ones being my rings, but I keep all 8 on all the time for that reason- 5 he gave me, 3 Fiance gave me. Also from Daddy, a 1920’s art deco metal make-up purse, a few pairs of earrings/necklaces, mostly jewelry and antique items. Honestly I’d be chucking everything out the window with my Chihuahuas strapped to my body hah

I’m so paranoid, I actually have a fireproof box in my house.

I have my great great grandmothers pearl necklace & earrings, sentimental items from my relationship w/ Fiance, photos of family & important documents.

@arineya: that mental image is kind of hilarious.

Not material goods, but my twins for sure-their safety is paramount. The material thing that I would save would be my pictures. I have boxes and boxes of pictures-particularly the twins’s baby pictures that would be impossible to replace.

Probably photographs and some material my mom gave me before she passed away.  And my hound… that’s more than one 🙂

Ok, since you asked which material thing I’d save … that means the answer could not be a living thing … such as fiance =) ….

Assuming I am wearing my engagement ring …. ahhh wait the wedding band is safely tucked away until wedding day .. ok I’d save his wedding band and my wedding band because they both are very special to me.

My other answer would be my laptop… its seriously like my lifeline.

my two little puppies!

but if your asking material (that isn’t attached to me like my e-ring) i would say may figure skates! only because i was once in a car accident goning back to college and when asked what i NEEDED out of my car i asked for my skates….leaving my purse, cell phone, laptop and everything else in my unlocked car being towed away. i didn’t think, it was just the first thing that came to my mind

This is completely non-sentimental, but definitely my laptop.

Over the summer, we smelled smoke in our house and ran out to wait for the fire fighters.  I grabbed my dog, my laptop and all by Bar study books so if the house burned down I could still finish my Bar course.
