  • Does this include no animals? If not, then my dog because I love her. I feel bad that I wouldn't save the fish...but they're more replaceable and the tank is WAY to heavy and they are way too big to just throw in some water in a bag and run.

    If the pets aren't there either, then I'd probably go for the memory box my husband and I keep. It has everything from pictures of us, our son, and our pets to notes over the years. I just couldn't part with it.

  • I am with MamaPyra, the animals would be the first thing I grabbed! If not them or second would be our important files.

  • well since we have no pets, and the kids are gone already I would have to say my photo albums. I think I would be devestated if I lost those. I have insurance so I can replace everything else, but I can't replace my memories. So I would have to grab my photo albums and make a break for it.

  • HMMMMM, I would probably grab my box of writings. I could never replace them. Everything else is replaceable. To an extent that is.

  • Of course, I would grab my dog. But if we're not talking about animals then, I think I would have to grab my engagement ring/wedding band and probably my computer that has all of my important files (photos,etc.) on it. Many of my important files (birth cert, marriage license, etc.)are in my fire safe box so it would survive the fire.
