To you, what is the most important non-living item in your home?

Asked by ibstubro (18765points) September 12th, 2014

The first thing that you would save if there was a natural disaster sure to annihilate your home?

It should ultimately be a single item, and personally portable.

My photo albums.

My external hard drive. It has all my photos and essential documents on it.

You should be sure to share your photos with friends and family, @janbb. Caption. Not only will you be able to retrieve your pix if necessary, but you’ll tell some great stories.

I had the exact same thought, @Earthbound_Misfit. Man, I’d hate to lose that stuff.

My living room area rug, it really ties the room together.

@Blondesjon That’s just, like, your opinion, man.

My teddy bear. My parents literally placed it in my crib when I was a newborn. It’s a little beat up and faded, but I’ve had it ever since.

My laptop and my Vitamix. I’d hate to bear the expense of having to replace either.

Also I’m sitting in bed, it’s under my arm right now. :’)

Oh good to hear it’s a bear. I came out of the elevator and there’s two guys with Glocks under their arms.

My guitar or my laptop…do I really have to choose just one?
Thank God a lot of my other valuable stuff is at my parents’ house!

Internet, obviously.

Photograph albums and disks containing digital photographs.

Egg whisk, you can’t beat it.

I have a lockbox that contains important documents, including insurance documents for the house. I’d save that first.

Since I can’t take the piano….the bear wins.

He would have won regardless.

External hard drive with all my music.

My clarinets (they live together in a single carry case). Laptop and the externals can burn; all my important stuff is in the cloud.

SAme as @downtide. Titles, documents, etc…

For those who are concerned about losing files, you might consider Carbonite. It’s, like $50 a year and it backs your files to the clouds when your computer is inactive.

If I didn’t have Carbonite, I’d say my photos and documents too.

The stuff I’d want to take would be impossible, unless I had a moving van and time. Much of my furniture came from the house I grew up in.

My mirror with a thousand different reflections…
