    Nothing. Once the people and pets are out, everything else is replaceable.

    Probably the cross stitch I've been working on for over 7 years and then I'd be torn between purse and laptop. The laptop and cross stitch are next to each other though, so I'd probably cheat, grab both of those and then the purse.

    My stash box. Nothing else is that important if the pets are safe.

    Purse & laptop (phone & wallet are in purse, photos have all been scanned into laptop). If I had time (and assuming hubby & the cats were safe), the last thing I would grab is Bessie...my stuffed dog that was given to me at birth. She went to camp and on vacations with me, went to college with me, moved all over the country with me. She's irreplaceable...and now that I think about it, I might just leave the purse & take Bessie!

    that's where i keep my pron, too.

    I'd grab my safe which has all my silver bullion, wedding vows, and documentation about my adoption with correspondence with my birth mom.

    We've got a ton of autographed memorabilia which I'd hate to lose but probably the crucifix that hung in my grandma's house that now hangs in my house.

    Wallet and phone seem like they make the most sense. I'd try to get a car out of the garage if possible, though.

    This thread makes me feel dumber about not backing up my photos and videos. It's so easy, but I'm pretty negligent about doing it.

    Not meaning to be stupid, but why isn't it on your finger?
