The First Thing You Should Do After a Breakup For Your Heart's Sake

Do Tell: What Would you Save?

If you were like me, you would know exactly what to take if you had to evacuate your house in a hurry. I would grab my photo albums, my jewelry and my memorabilia box that holds old letters, cards, and special little keepsakes that are irreplaceable. So ladies, if you had only 5 minutes left in your apartment or house before it was destroyed forever, do tell, what personal belongings would you want to save?

My cats, MONEY, photo albums (although there are too many to carry) and my jewelry...everything else can be replaced including my passport.

My entire family's legal documents (ie birth certificates) are all stored in a briefcase, so obviously that first. Then the laptop, computer tower, family photo albums, and my baby pillow. I'd like to assume the rest of my family would be smart enough to get themselves out safely. ;)

my computer, photos, some jewelery and a few family heirlooms to pass on to the next generation.

My purse, my camera, hard drive (for all the pictures there), photos of my dad (not on my computer), few pieces of jewelry that are sentimental, stuffed cow my grandpa gave me, slides of pictures my dad took, passport... There's probably something I'm forgetting! :o)

I work in insurance and not even two hours ago one of our policyholders called to say his house was on fire and his family was okay, but they couldn't find one of their pets. I feel so bad for him and his family. If I was in the situation I would grab my dog, my purse, my teddy bear (it used to be my mom's), my accordian file where I keep my passport and all my bills and other important info, my computer if it was possible.

The dogs and my purse, and if I had time I'd grab important documents (birth certificates, etc.), the laptop, and our wedding album. Everything else is easily replaced. I actually carry a flash drive around in my purse with backups of the music and photos I store on the computer that I don't want to lose.

AND! I'd make sure the hubby was out...lol. Can't forget about him!

OH goodness...first I would shoo out the two cats and the dog, then grab photos, and whatever clothes I could grab. You're gonna need those eventually! And like Prisslilbadass said, my purse. It has lots of goodies in it :-)

That easy, my dog and my purse (so that I have a phone to call 911) and then get the hell outta there! I would NEVER forgive myself if I left my dog in there. :(

I would grab my son and his favorite blankie and stuffed kitty. Then I'd grab the three scrapbooks I have, my purse and my black work bag, my "life" is in those two bags.

I am taking my purse and my dog and running the heck out!

Well, first of all I would grab my son. That's the most important. Then I would grab his "Blankie" that he takes everywhere with him. Since I have no photo albums, I would grab my laptop, since every photo I have is on there. And then I would grab my parakeets.
