If your house burned down and you could only save one thing, what would it be?

*edit to add, all living things, prescriptions, hair products, and toothbrushes are already miraculously out and safe (wink-wink)

I realized that most of the photos of my family (children and extended family) have duplicates at my mother's home.  The ones I would lose would be the ones on my computer (but if I plan well I can slip a memory card in my wallet) and sneak out two things in one.

 Photos.  When my home burned, a lot of those were lost.  I treasure the ones that I still have.

All of our pictures so technically I'd have to take my computeer too cause that's where the majority of them are

Everything in my home is replaceable. If the things you listed were safe I would be fine with watching it burn. I have insurance so no worries. And my mom has copies of all my pics.

I'm changing my answer to my wallet.  I know not very sentimental but losing all identification and access to money could be problematic.  

 Good answer.

I said photos but I'm going to say my purse because it has a wallet and a bunch of other important things.

That's a great thing. I wish I'd have had backup's either digital or with another family member. But you probably should maintain a thumb drive as you go because my power went out almost immediately due to the location of the fire.

An apartment of mine did when I was 28. when the firemen knocked on my door, I grabbed my dog and got out. Nothing else mattered.

Pictures. I use my grandmas idea from years ago. My family pictures are in suitcases so if God forbid we have a fire, they are 'grab and go'.

I ran out with my purse. It was pretty much the only thing I could find, :-(
